Seven-try Warrington Wolves kicked off the 2023 Betfred Super League season in style as they stormed to a 42-10 win over Leeds Rhinos.
Matt Dufty set the tone for the hosts with the first try of the new season after just four minutes, and further scores from Josh Thewlis, Daryl Clark, Danny Walker and debutant Sam Kasiano helped them into a 30-0 lead at half-time.
Debut tries from Derrell Olpherts and Justin Sangare got the Rhinos on the board after the break, but there was no way back as James Harrison’s first try in a Warrington shirt and Greg Minikin’s finish ensured a comfortable victory for Daryl Powell’s side.
Having finished 11th in 2022 after being expected to challenge for the title, it was just the start to the campaign the Wolves would have wanted, while leaving last year’s Grand Final runners-up with plenty to ponder after an out-of-sorts showing.
