Men's Super-8: Young Wolves side beat Cambridge

Warrington Wolves stay top of men’s Super-8 on goal difference after beating Cambridge 37-21.

Wolves fielded their youngest team since they took their place in the Super 8 with an average age of just over 19 and a half.

Wolves led 20-8 at the break after racing into a 10-5 lead with just 10 minutes gone. Cambridge fought back in the second half but found Wolves keeper Alex Bradley in excellent form.

Wolves Head Coach Bill Baillie said: "This was a good test for us, and with GB players Chris McDermott (injured) and Morgan Gillet (illness) both out, the young players are growing and gaining great experience. This is a good Cambridge side, but today they came up against a determined team."

West London Eagles are second in the table after also making it two-wins-from-two. The Eagles hosted Olympia at Sporthouse, running out 32-26 winners.

Meanwhile, Nottingham recorded their first victory in Super-8. They beat fellow promoted side Coventry 22-21 in a nail-biting Midlands derby at Coventry Sports Centre.
