7th May 2000: Wigan 50 Hull FC 18

Wigan Warriors v Hull FC - Tetley's Super League V Round 9
Sunday 7th May 2000. Kick Off 3:00pm at JJB Stadium

Super League leaders Wigan gained ample revenge on Shaun McRae's Hull for dumping them out of the Challenge Cup earlier in the season with a powerful eight-try response.

The visitors' early threats were well and truly cancelled out when the Warriors ran in three scintillating tries in the space of seven minutes, all plundered down Hull's right flank.

Wigan skipper Andy Farrell was at his brilliant best masterminding all his side's attacking moves and making some brilliant clear breaks.

After landing the opening points with a 20-metre penalty Farrell broke clear on 14 minutes to expose the suspect Hull defence before second-rower Mick Cassidy posted the opening try following a final pass from former Hull scrum-half Willie Peters.

To their credit Hull hit back through a deft Steve Collins try that saw three Warriors left flat-footed in his wake.

Sadly for Hull, all this did was to prompt Wigan to move up a gear when they registered three killer tries.

Simon Haughton set off on a 30-yard dash before Jason Robinson showed great delight in finishing with a touchdown under the sticks. Five minutes later Farrell's long pass enabled Haughton to register try number three for Wigan before another super break from the captain saw Chris Radlinski touch down on 33 minutes.

Wigan, leading 26-6 at the interval, returned with all guns blazing as first Brett Dallas showed a clean pair of heels with a 50-yard dash for the line to register his ninth try of the season four minutes into the second half.

This well and truly finished off Hull as hooker Terry Newton poured on more agony for the visitors.

Hull managed to pull back a couple of tries through Richard Horn and Adam Maher before Wigan landed their final two tries, a second for Robinson and a try for Australian Test centre Steve Renouf.

And it was fitting that Captain Marvel Farrell chalked up the half-century of points wit his ninth successful shot at goal 10 minutes from the end.
