11th June 2000: Wigan 52 Salford 20

Wigan Warriors v Salford City Reds - Tetley's Super League V Round 14
Sunday 11th June 2000. Kick Off 3:00pm at JJB Stadium

Wigan skipper Andy Farrell created a new Super League record of 500 goals in Sunday's romp against Salford and also equalled Bobby Goulding's record in landing the fastest 100 goals in a season, taking 17 games to achieve the feat.

The match was all over as a contest by the interval as the Warriors crossed the Salford line six times in the opening 40 minutes, the visitors' defence offering little resistance.

Brett Dallas, Wigan's Australian speedster, scored his first hat-trick for the club with an awesome display of wing play.

It was Dallas who opened the scoring after just four minutes and this signalled the start of the Wigan onslaught.

The Warriors landed five more tries during the next 20-minute spell, which saw Jason Robinson nabbing a brace and Chris Chester scoring his first of the season.

Salford did manage a crumb of comfort when the hard-working Darren Brown crossed for the visitors.

A more determined Salford side took the field after the interval and were rewarded with tries by James Smith, Nick Pinkney and Steve Blakeley to make the scoreline a little more respectable.

But Wigan again pressed the gas pedal when Dallas completed his hat-trick following a timely Willie Peters interception.

Brady Malam also registered his first try in a Wigan jersey before scrum-half Peters chalked up the half-century mark with Wigan's final try.

Wigan coach Frank Endacott said: "The scoreline says it was comfortable but it was a typical back-up game after the Wednesday match against Bradford.

"Fatigue set in and we did a lot of silly things in the second half, but I can understand that."

Endacott admitted he was unaware of Farrell's 500 goal Super League record when he replaced him early in the second half. He said: "If I'd brought him off at 499 I wouldn't have been too popular."

Farrell added: "I was wearing a new pair of boots so it wasn't a bad way to break them in."

Salford coach John Harvey said: "Wigan played exceptionally well in the first half. Everything they did turned to gold.

"But we came back well in the second half, showed a lot of fighting spirit and we can take some positives out of it."
