Warrington dazzled with an eight-try display over Salford to notch up their second successive win on Sunday.

Full-back Gary Hulse and centre Darren Burns both touched down twice as Warrington romped to an easy victory.

Mike Forshaw, Ben Westwood, Graham Appo and Jerome Guisset also scored to deny Salford the win they needed to move closer to Super League survival.

Inspirational Lee Briers added to their misery, booting seven goals from eight attempts in front of 8,641 fans.

But it was Salford who got on the scoresheet first with stand-off Kevin McGuinness' try after 13 minutes, duly converted by Chris Charles.

We were very efficient for an hour and were only really tested for two 10-minute spells
Warrington boss Paul Cullen
But Salford were then rocked by five Warrington tries in 20 minutes with forward Gareth Haggerty needlessly conceding penalties which led to two of the touchdowns.

Hulse levelled the scores in the 19th minute with his first try.

Burns finished off a superb move involving Mike Wainwright and Hulse for another touchdown.

Brent Grose then created the chance for Ben Westwood to go over with Burns adding a second from Briers' long pass just before the interval.

I'm very disappointed because we looked flat and jaded
Salford coach Karl Harrison
Salford cut the gap to 30-16 with tries from Nathan McAvoy and Andy Johnson

But Warrington took charge again when Danny Lima burst through for Hulse to go over for his second try on the hour.

Warrington added further tries from Appo and Guisset sandwiched by a Stuart Littler effort for Salford to ensure victory for the home side.
