Warrington overturned a half-time deficit to end the regular season Super League campaign with a win over Widnes.

Matty Russell gave Wolves the perfect start but Joe Mellor’s converted score gave Widnes a narrow lead.

Peta Hiku put Warrington back in front before they eased clear through Kevin Brown’s score against his former club and a second from Russell.

Both sides will now play in the Qualifiers as they bid to retain their top-flight status for next season.

Huddersfield’s win over Leigh Centurions last week meant Warrington, last year’s beaten Grand Finalists, knew they would not make the Super 8s this season but they will go into the Qualifiers with confidence after three successive wins.

Widnes, who in contrast have now lost four games in a row, could end up finishing bottom of the regular season table if the Centurions beat Salford on Friday.

The two sides will face each other again in the Qualifiers, with the Wolves having won all three of this season’s meetings in Super League and Challenge Cup.

Warrington: Ratchford, Russell, Hiku, Atkins, Lineham, Patton, Brown, Cooper, Clark, Sims, Jullien, Hughes, Philbin.

Replacements: Currie, G. King, Savelio, Smith.

Widnes: Thompson, Armstrong, Chamberlain, Runciman, Marsh, Mellor, B. Walker, J. Chapelhow, Johnstone, Dudson, Whitley, Olbison, Cahill.

Replacements: Gerrard, Burke, D. Walker, T. Chapelhow.

Referee: Robert Hicks (RFL)
