Warrington Wolves scored five unanswered second-half tries as they came from 12-0 down to beat Hull FC.
Dean Hadley put Hull into the lead while Mickey Paea stunned the Halliwell Jones Stadium into silence soon after.
Harvey Livett, who signed a new two-year deal with the Wire on Wednesday, touched down soon after the break.
Kevin Brown spun around to score the hosts' second before Ben Murdoch-Masila, Josh Charnley and Ryan Atkins completed a fine turnaround.
Warrington remain third and Hull fourth in Super League following the result, but the hosts are now two points behind second-placed Wigan, who were defeated by Hull KR.
Charnley, who has been in fine form since joining the club in a cross-code switch from Sale Sharks, was denied a try that would have got Warrington back into the game just before the half-hour mark after he was judged to have latched on to a forward pass.
There was controversy just before half-time as Wolves captain Chris Hill alleged he had been bitten by Hakim Miloudi in a ground challenge.
Referee Gareth Hewer put the incident on report having decided initial video replays were inconclusive, much to the annoyance of the crowd, who booed Hewer off at the break.
