Match Report

Radlinski routs sorry Salford

By Site staff
Date: 21/7/2001

The Warriors have joined Bradford at the top of Super League following what was, frankly, an embarrassingly one-side victory over Salford at the JJB. Radlinski and Newton both bagged hat-tricks in a 70-4 win.

Frank Endacott will surely raise a smile at this result; it was defeat against Salford earlier this season that signaled the end of his tenure at the JJB. Like us, he must be wondering how what is effectively the same team that surrendered so tamely at the Willows can hand them such a comprehensive cuffing a matter of weeks later. Impressive as Stuart Raper has been since his arrival from Cas it can't all be down to him. Maybe this team are just slow starters.

Whatever the reason it's good to see Wigan playing with purpose and confidence. Yes, it was only Salford but the form of the key players, many of whom looked jaded and out of touch at the start of the season, augurs well for the rest of the season. Even Matthew Johns, who stood in for the injured Adrian Lam at scrum-half, has found some form - with a combination of clever kicking, deft running and handling he had a direct influence in four of the first half tries.

The first half was a blitz. Wigan were 42-0 up after half an hour, and added a further four points before half-time, at which point a century of points looked a safe bet. As often happens though, Wigan took their foot off the gas in the second-half, possibly out of pity for their opponents who, by this stage, had given up the ghost, chucked in the towel and were clearly just going through the motions.

Radlinski, as ever, was awesome running in three tries taking his tally for the season to 23. For the record Farrell helped himself to 26 points with the boot and, for good measure, four more from a second-half try and Terry Newton compounded Salford's misery by bowling over for a hat-trick himself. All in all a good night to be a Warrior.
