Ratchford earns the plaudits as Warrington steamroll London Broncos

Stefan Ratchford

His side won by a mammoth 72 points but Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith still had time to fit in a multitude of praise for centre Stefan Ratchford, who he believes can become a staple figure in the English line-up.

Scoring a try and kicking a double-digit amount of goals, it was his pace that proved too much to handle for the Broncos, as the Southerners suffered a record home Super League defeat.

“Stefan is a super player – a terrific talent,” Smith said.

“He seems to pop up in positions all over the field and he can slot in easily anywhere.

“I know there are people calling for electronic cigarette gdl him to make the England side and I think he will if he keeps performing like that.

“He has to be patient and consistent and if he does I am sure he will force his way in.”

Broncos coach Tony Read was brutally honest, labelling his side’s performance as unacceptable.

“I want to apologise to anybody that came today expecting us to compete as we didn’t,” said Rea.

“We seemed to be spooked right from the start and when they came at us we couldn’t handle it. We backed out of the challenge and that is not good enough. For us we have to go back to basics.”
