They led by only 18-12 at half-time and it took two interception tries midway through the second half to put them clear. The first came from Warrington's substitute, Richard Henare, who raced 50 yards to score and four minutes later Darren Carter's pass was intercepted by Toa Kohe-Love, who went 60 yards for a try. Kohe-Love rounded off a fine full debut three minutes from time when he crossed for his second.
In a frantic finish, Warrington added a further try by Mark Forster while Lee Chilton and Logan Campbell crossed for Workington.
Halifax Bluesox slipped to their second defeat in two Super League outings with their 34-22 loss at Oldham. They also had their prop Paul Anderson dismissed a minute before half-time for a high tackle on David Bradbury.
Oldham looked to have the game sewn up when they led 22-10, but on a bone-hard pitch Halifax drew level with two tries in six minutes by their diminutive scrum-half Craig Dean.
Oldham came back with late tries from Darren Abram - his second - and Martin Crompton. The scrum-half had a hand in most of Oldham's six tries and he was well supported by man of the match, Paul Atcheson.Reuse content
