Gareth Hock scored twice as Leigh Centurions condemned winless Warrington Wolves to a fifth straight Super League defeat of the season with a convincing 22-8 win on Thursday.

The hosts, buoyed by a 30-0 victory over Huddersfield Giants last week, were quick out of the blocks at Leigh Sports Village and had a 12-0 lead inside 16 minutes.

Hock went over first from close range before Lee Crooks touched down after racing onto his own grubber kick.

The visitors, who welcomed skipper and ex-Leigh prop Chris Hill into their side for the first time this season, only had a Kurt Gidley penalty to show before the break and last year's League Leader's Shield winners rarely looked like forcing their way back into the game during the second half.

Indeed, Leigh's third try just after the hour stretched the lead as Ryan Hampshire and Crooks combined well to create the chance for winger Adam Higson to touch down.


Hock crossed for his second and Leigh's fourth shortly after, effectively ending the match as a contest.

Warrington did manage to respond through a Tom Lineham try but, with only 10 minutes left, it was nothing more than a consolation score.

The defeat means that bottom-placed Wire have now matched their worst start to a Super League campaign, while Neil Jukes' Centurions climb from eighth to fourth in the table off the back of their third consecutive home win of the season.
