Warrington produced a superb first-half display to put them on the road to a convincing 50-22 victory against crisis-hit Bradford at the Halliwell Jones Stadium
The Wolves claimed six tries in the opening 40 minutes including four in a scintillating 10-minute spell as they built up a 32-6 half-time advantage.
Full-back Stefan Ratchford claimed two tries in the opening half with others coming from Joel Monaghan, Richie Myler, Chris Riley and Simon Grix with Lee Briers landing four goals. Ratchford went on to claim two further tries in the second half for a four-try haul, with David Solomona also crossing in a comfortable win for the home side.
Danny Addy claimed two tries for the Bulls in defeat with Elliott Whitehead and Karl Pryce also touching down and Luke Gale landing three goals.
The Challenge Cup finalists immediately stamped their authority on the game with a try inside the opening minute. Ben Harrison, Briers and Rhys Evans all handled before sending winger Monaghan over in the corner for the opening try of the game.
The Wolves were applying all the early pressure and they took full control of the game with four tries in a brilliant 10-minute spell. A long Briers pass allowed Myler to claim the second try of the game and that was quickly followed two minutes later when the Bulls failed to deal with a huge Briers bomb and Riley was on hand to scoop up the loose ball and score.
The Wolves then went the length of the field for a stunning score as Ben Westwood released Ratchford deep inside his own half, with Myler then carrying on the move and returning the ball to Ratchford for a superb try.
Warrington claimed their fifth try of the half when Myler sent Grix over and with Briers landing four conversions from five attempts the Wolves were in total command at 28-0. Ratchford then grabbed his second try but the Bulls had the final say of the half though when they claimed a try through Addy to reduce the deficit to 32-6 at half time.
The Bulls gave themselves some hope of a remarkable comeback as they grabbed two tries within eight minutes of the restart. Firstly, Addy plunged over and then Craig Kopczak's midfield break was supported by Whitehead who raced clear to score. Gale added one conversion to reduce Warrington's lead to 32-16.
A close range try from Solomona steadied the Warrington ship though and then Myler's midfield break allowed Ratchford to race clear for his hat-trick try on 63 minutes. Ratchford made it a personal haul of four tries five minutes later before Bradford had the final word when Pryce collected Gale's kick to touch down for a consolation try late on.
