Wolves repeated last season’s Wembley win over the same opponents with tries from Josh Charnley (2), Anthony Gelling and Matty Ashton helping them overcome an early 8-0 deficit.

Regan Grace and Kevin Naiqama scored either side of Charnley’s second, but Lachlan Coote missed a difficult kick which would have forced extra-time.

The Challenge Cup semi-finals are scheduled for Saturday October 3, with the final on Saturday October 17.
