Warrington coach Steve Price has praised Castleford-bound centre Jake Mamo after the Australian star’s two tries set-up a 26-6 win over Huddersfield.

Speedy Mamo, who has signed a three-year deal with the Tigers starting in 2022, is in the running to become Super League’s top try scorer.

The former Newcastle Knight’s first-half double against his old club took his tally to 14.

Mike Cooper and Huddersfield-born Toby King added further tries in the last 12 minutes, while full-back Stefan Ratchford kicked five goals for third-placed Wire.

“Jake is a strong lad and really enjoying his football,” said Price after Warrington bounced back from defeat at Wakefield last time out.

“He has been great for us all season and I feel there is still more to come. He has been one of the form centres of the competition.

“It is a shame he couldn’t get the hat-trick but it was a good display from him.

“He brings x-factor and high energy which we love. I hope he continues to do that to become the best player he can become.

“I love everything about him. He is a match winner, he has got speed and that’s hard to buy in today’s game. I am stoked I have got him this season.”

In other results, Wakefield beat Hull Kingston Rovers 25-18, Castleford defeated Hull 23-12 and St Helens whipped Leigh 42-12.
