Wigan Warriors 47-16 Hull FC

After a good start by Wigan and an early 2 nil advantage, Hull started to dominate the match and scored three tries in 14 minutes with Radford, Hall and Willie Manu ripping holes in what looked like a beaten defence to grasp a 2-16 lead.

Things looked grim for Wigan, untill Barret, Plleaaesina,Richards and Higham turned the game on its head. Brian Noble must have been delighted by the responce to the poor defence his side displayed for 22 minutes of the first half.

It was a quick fire double from Barret just before half time that inspired the remarkable fight back.

The Pie Eaters blitzed Hull in the second forty with Richards bagging a hatrick and 9 goals for a massive 30 point haul, The rampaging Iafeta Paleaaesina battered holes in the Hull line, and with Fielden as his replacement the Warriors tore holes in the oppositions defence. Higham carved them up around the ruck area in a five star performance that shot the wigan giants into the top four.

Higham and Ashton rounded of the scorers but it was a classy, inspired showing from the ex- St George play maker. Peter sharp was very curtious about the result but he must have wondered like the rest of us what hit them in a 45 minute anhililation of his Hull side.

Best for Hull were Willi Manu, Richard Horne and Richard Swain

Best for Wigan were Trent Barret, Iafeta Paleaaesina, Pat Richards and Micky Higham.

Match Rating 4.5/5
