Wigan Warriors v
- Tetley's Super League VI Round 22
Friday 3rd August
2001. Kick Off 8:00pm at JJB Stadium
just gets better for Wigan. Granted we have played some easy games in
this run, but the quality of rugby is there. And even with off field
activities the boys are playing top stuff.
Kris Radlinski added to his lead as the league's top tryscorer with two tries
and the man of the match award in Wigan's 46-18 win over London.
Radlinski was all class at the back for Wigan as the home side avenged their
defeat earlier in the season to London with a breath taking eight tries to three
Wigan now move top of the Super League table - equal with Bradford.
Wigan set the tone early when Farrell scored in the opening minute and before
the spectators had reached their seats Wigan were ahead 6-0.
Although London scored three minutes later when Brett Dallas dropped a bomb for
Glen Air to touchdown and a further penalty saw the Broncos lead by two, it was
just a minor blip for Wigan.
Two more tries on the 20 minute mark to Paul Johnson and Radlinski gave the
Warriors some breathing space.
London did have a try disallowed on 25 minutes when Matt Toshack was ruled
offside but it was only two minutes later when scrum-half Adrian Lam made a
break to feed David Furner who crossed and Wigan went into halftime 24-8 ahead.
When London scored twice through Justin Dooley and Toshack in the 47th and 53rd
minutes they were in with a chance at 24-18 and 20 minutes left on the clock but
that just made Radlinski show his class.
His great support play was rewarded when he backed up a Mathew Johns' break and
then before you knew it Wigan had three further tries to wrap up the game.
Chris Chester scored within a minute of subbing on while former Brisbane Bronco
Steve Renouf had an intercept special.
Mick Cassidy had the final say with a try on fulltime after Johns flipped a ball
to Neil Cowie who overloaded superbly to Cassidy under the bar. Andy Farrell
kicked seven out of eight goals.
