Wigan Maintain 100% Super 8s Record

Wigan remain unbeaten in their super 8's campaign despite a rousing effort from a Hull team with 11 consecutive defeats to their name .

Hull of course have suffered significantly from injuries this season with Albert Kelly and Marc Sneyd still missing .

It was a game littered with errors and Wigan seemed to be at three quarter pace for much of the game .

Hull started well and two early tries from Carlos Tuimavave and Jamie Shaul with conversions from Jake Connor gave the visitors an early 12-0 lead. Both scores came from kicks and there was plenty of enthusiasm in the Hull ranks.

This was a gritty,hard working effort from a Hull team who made some significant contributions in defence to hold the Wigan team.

Wigan however soon hit back when the rampaging young Aussie Gabriel Hamlin took a nice pass from Sam Powell to split the Hull defensive line.
With the conversion from Josh Woods Wigan were looking a little vulnerable with a 12-6 half time deficit.

In the second half Wigan managed to contain Hull with relative ease and George Williams , John Bateman and the ever dangerous Morgan Escare all had the line at their mercy .Dom Manfredi also looked promising again and went close after a kick from Taulima Tautai.
Wigan have an abundance of riches available on the wings for next season in Dom Manfredi, Liam Marshall, Tom Davies and Joe Burgess and all of them are home grown talent as well .

Wigan eventually put some points on the board when Dan Sarginson took a lovely George Williams high ball. this was followed by an Oliver Gildart score to seal the game as he wriggled free from a Scott Taylor attempted tackle,

Hull could offer little in attack apart from some nice touches from Jamie Shaul and although they looked the stronger team in the final ten this was a game Wigan were not going to lose. .Mistakes in the closing phases from Griffin and Talanoa demonstrating that this was not going to be Hull’s day

Hull coach Lee Radford will be happier perhaps with that defensive effort but Wigan had their minds on other games one would suspect.
