Warrington made it two wins from two in The Super 8s Qualifiers as they comfortably saw off Catalans Dragons at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Five first-half tries, including two for full-back Stefan Ratchford, put Wire in control at the break, 30-6 up.

The visitors almost matched them after the break, but ended up well beaten.

Ratchford, Ryan Atkins and Tom Lineham all crossed twice, with Wire’s other tries from Matty Russell, Peta Hiku and Declan Patton, who kicked eight goals.

Krisnan Inu scored twice for Catalans, who also crossed through Remy Casty and Lewis Tierney, while Luke Walsh added four goals.

Veteran England forward Benny Westwood returned from a three-game suspension to make his 400th appearance for the club since moving from Wakefield in 2002.

Warrington began last weekend with victory at Widnes, while the Dragons edged home against London Broncos.
