19th May 2001: Hull 10 Wigan 46

Hull Sharks v Wigan Warriors - Tetley's Super League VI Round 11
Saturday 19th May 2001. Kick Off
6:00pm at The Boulevard

Match Report by Andy Ellis (wiganwarriors.rivals.net)

Stuart Raper must have been pleased with what he saw as in his first game in charge Wigan blasted 46 points past second placed Hull. It all goes well for the rest of the season as it was the best team performance of the season with everybody except Mathew Johns looking the part.

From the 1st set of six Wigan looked like there normal selves and looking to impress new boss Raper. In fact it took only 3 minuets for the boys to assert themselves on the game with a try from 15 yards David Furner running onto a pass from the under-pressure Johns. 6-0.

Wigan really did look like a side in control and great defence quickly turned into attack and timer Denis Betts clung onto a bullet pass from Andy Farrell the conversion made it 12-0 in the first 10 minuets. The dominance Wigan showed when straight from the kick off Renouf ran 50 yards, this then eventually lead to a missed Farrell penalty. But is was all Wigan again from the drop out Brett Dallas ran the ball back 60 yards but squandered a certain try by trying to go alone the ball eventually ending up in touch. Wigan though were looking like the side we all know and love and the third Wigan try was not far away on the last tackle Dennis Betts leaped like a flying gazelle to charge down the Hull kick and run in for his second try, Farrell added the extras.

20 minuets into the game the first Wigan mistake with a Terry O'Connor forward pass who at this time was the man of the match. This lead to a Maher score for the Sharks 18-4. Hull for there part did then start playing some decent Rugby and another Hull try started a few alarm bells ringing the conversion added 18-10. Wigan then started looking a bit fragile and Hull came at them, could the defence stand a barrage of Hull pressure. Yes was the answer a kick from ex Warrior Tony Smith led to Andy Farrell in his own in goal area he passed yes passed the ball to Hodgson who ran the ball 40 yards out of the defence and it was only a Steve Prescott hand that stopped another Wigan try.

It was however Hull that did finish the half stronger. But the half time score was 18-10.

Hull started the second knowing that there was a game to win as Wigan looked like a different side as the Sharks came as Wigan, the next score would be vital. It was Wigan who came good following another onslaught by Hull. Brett Dalls who looked shaky from the bomb caught and ran 60 yards up the field and maybe would have scored if he wasn't shot by a Japanese Samurai, but we were in from the next tackle Newton passed to Renouf who went over Faz missed the kick It was two in two minuets Hodgson to Renouf to Radlinski who scored in his 200th game for Wigan easy does it Faz added two more 28-10 55 minutes gone, all over now I hope.

It was after an hour after a run from the very quiet Gary Connolly opened the Wigan defence passed to Brett Dalls who carried the ball over conversion made 34-10. Further converted tries from Renouf and a last minute Connolly effort made the score at the final whistle of 46-10.

Yes the score looked good but there are still a couple of questions game from the game. WHY IS MATTHEW JOHNS IN THE SIDE? and How good was Terry Newton back at hooker?. Raper certainly has some work to do but on the whole a convincing victory. You can look at it another way apart from 25 minuets at the end of the first and start of the second we dominated a side second in the league. Well done lads. Roll on Friday and Castleford.
