Warrington ended Catalan Dragons' 100 per cent start to the Super League season on Friday night, while Leeds defeated Salford.
Winger Joel Monaghan scored twice as unbeaten Warrington ended Catalan Dragons' 100 per cent start to the Super League season with an ugly 24-16 win at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
The Australian crossed twice and Richie Myler added another as the Wolves claimed a crucial early lead in a scrappy, ill-disciplined and controversial contest.
Damien Blanch began a fightback with two tries but the game got beyond the Dragons, who twice saw Brent Webb sin-binned, when Rhys Evans touched down.
Zeb Taia reduced the arrears late on but the Wolves, who were unexpectedly without playmaker Lee Briers and played most of the game without early injury victim Adrian Morley, had done enough.
Joel Moon haunted former employers Salford as Leeds won 42-14 against Salford in their final Super League game before the World Club Challenge.
Australian centre Moon was snapped up by Leeds following an impressive season with the Reds last year - he scored 11 tries in 19 games - and touched down twice as part of a classy display.
He was not always joined in excellence by his team-mates as Salford occasionally made life difficult for Brian McDermott's reigning champions, but the Rhinos had enough about them to pull clear when they needed to.
Stevie Ward, Kallum Watkins, Paul McShane (2) and Kevin Sinfield also bagged tries for Leeds.
Ashley Gibson (2) and Niall Evalds went over for Salford.
Australian stand-off Daniel Holdsworth put Hull into a winning position but failed to secure the win in Friday night's 22-22 draw against St Helens at Langtree Park.
The Black and Whites fought back from 22-12 down to draw level with the aid of Richard Whiting's 72nd-minute try and should have taken both points after dominating the final quarter.
But Holdsworth, who had helped create all four of his side's tries and kicked three superb conversions, missed a kick to win it and was also wide with two long-range drop-goal attempts in a frantic finish.
That left St Helens relieved to salvage a point after once more looking distinctly out of sorts, despite the return from injury of influential hooker James Roby.
Jason Crookes, Shannon McDonnell and Tom Briscoe also scored tries for Hull. Anthony Laffranchi, Francis Meli, Jordan Turner and Josh Jones were the men to cross for St Helens.
