Official Report / Commentary

Wigan underlined their Super League title credentials with their best performance of the season to record a convincing 38-10 win over Warrington in an absorbing Magic Weekend encounter.

In a meeting between the competition’s form teams at St James’ Park, Wigan were clinical with ball in hand and scrambled superbly in defence to end Warrington’s 10-game winning run and stretch their own to eight matches.

 

 

Sam Tomkins’ four goals were the difference as the Warriors took a 16-10 lead into the break, with in-form Harry Livett and Stefan Ratchford touching down either side of efforts from Sam Powell and Tomkins.

John Bateman and George Williams scored back-to-back tries before Liam Marshall and Tom Davies crossed late on to complete a miserable afternoon for the Wolves.

Shaun Wane ranked Wigan’s victory as their best of the season before warning the rest of Super League that they have yet to hit their straps.

“That’s our best win this year,” said Wane. “But it’s very hard for me to be satisfied. I want to be happy with it but there’s still lots of areas we need to improve on. I always dwell towards them."

Warrington head coach Steve Price said: “We’d been playing some really good football and were turning things around but today we didn’t come to the races. It was hugely disappointing.

“Full credit to Wigan. I thought they played some really good football."
