A surprise package for the wrong reasons unfortunately as the Wolves came out in 2017 and were a complete shadow of what they were a year prior when they attained the League Leaders Shield.
The Wolves drastically under-performed which stunned many considering their early win over Brisbane Broncos.
Though that was a friendly, many thought Warrington stamped their mark for 2017 considering the signing of major personnel but they just couldn’t get going.
Hence why now, they’ve had several changes in both playing and coaching but more of that to follow, check out below how their season went and where perhaps, they could have gone better.
Best Performance: Warrington Wolves 25-14 Leeds Rhinos
A bit controversial but the Wolves’ best performance was their surprise home win over the future eight time Super League champions Leeds Rhinos.
Not their heaviest win but it was a determined one as Leeds were in good form whereas Warrington were yet to win until that night.
Ryan Atkins starred with two tries as well as touchdowns from Tom Lineham and Kurt Gidley, with Declan Patton slotting over four conversions and a drop-goal for good measure.
Leeds did produce a battle out of it and scored through Tom Briscoe, Matt Parcell and Joel Moon but the Wolves battled hard enough to hold them out.
Though in the end, the match proved academic as their Qualifiers’ fate was later sealed, it remained a confidence booster for them as it showed how capable the team were.
Shame more of it didn’t happen but they lived to fight another day after cruising through the Qualifiers due to still possessing some quality amongst their ranks.
