Super League side Warrington Wolves proved far too strong for Championship minnows Dewsbury Rams as they marched into the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup.

The eight-times winners ran in 10 tries, from which Wire centre Bridge, who also scored a second-half try, landed six of the conversions.

Brad Dwyer, Ryan Atkins, Ashton Sims, Ben Currie and Declan Patton all crossed before the break.

Kevin Penny (2), Bridge, Richie Myler and a second for Currie wrapped it up.

Dewsbury, who got on the board with a first-half penalty from James Delaney, crossed the visitors’ line just once, just past the half hour.

Loose forward Joel Farrell’s try was converted by Delaney, who added a third successful kick with the final score of the game in the last minute.

The Rams, fifth in the Championship, were missing several players, while Brett Seymour and Wayne Godwin were cup-tied, while Warrington, fifth in Super League and winners three years ago, were without their first-choice kicker, stand-off Stefan Ratchford.
