Australian centre Steve Renouf
came good for Wigan with two tries in the mauling of Salford.
who has struggled to live up to his big reputation since joining Wigan,
scored either side of half-time to help the club to a third successive
Super League win.
"It shows the class that Steve has," said Wigan boss Frank Endacott,
who added: "I hope we see a lot more of it."
Wigan's defence weathered an early Salford storm, with Warriors skipper
Andy Farrell landing two penalties and converting Tony Smith's 21st minute
try to put Wigan 10-0 ahead.
Renouf then claimed his double, the second a 30-metre burst, to put the
Warriors in a match-winning 20-0 lead just after the break.
Wigan cruised home with a 50-metre Willie Peters interception try and
Paul Johnson's late score from a move begun by Denis Betts.
Salford coach John Harvey was left scratching his head after a useful
Reds display brought no reward.
"I couldn't work out where we were going wrong," he said, "But their
defence was spot-on."
It was that defence which delighted Wigan Endacott. "The most
satisfying thing about it was the zero on the Salford scoreboard."
Wigan's only worry is hooker Terry Newton, who will have x-rays on a
suspected broken arm.
