30th July 2000: Wigan 68 Huddersfield-Sheffield 6

Wigan Warriors v Huddersfield-Sheffield Giants- Tetley's SL V Round 21
Sunday 30th July 2000. Kick Off 3:00pm at JJB Stadium

The Warriors kept the pressure up on rivals St Helens and Bradford at the top of Super League with a convincing 12-try victory over basement club Giants.

Captain marvel Andrew Farrell was at the heart of everything for the home side, scoring a hat-trick of tries and collecting a personal points haul of 32.

Despite a scrappy opening in which Wigan were guilty of some uncharacteristic handling, the home side finally got into gear with Farrell beginning the points avalanche with a 14th minute try.

Wigan's skipper turned provider five minutes later for Lee Gilmore to touch down, before the Yorkshire side hit back.

A brilliant long pass by their New Zealand full-back Gene Ngamu was superbly collected by left-winger Danny Arnold, who ghosted in at the corner.

Ngamu landed a sensational touchline kick to give the visitors hope, but this quickly disappeared with the sin-binning of hooker Johnny Lawless for deliberately going offside.

The Warriors took full advantage as Denis Betts powered over following some good work by Brady Malam and Willie Peters, while Farrell again was involved for Peters to score again just before the interval.

After the break it took Wigan just two minutes to again find their stride and this time it was Jason Robinson celebrating his 26th birthday with his 16th try of the season.

This signalled the opening of the floodgates as Wigan, led by Farrell, seemed to be able to score at will.

Delighted Warriors coach Frank Endacott said: "This was a top-class show. It was time that we put a side away and we certainly did that.

"A lot of our players stood out but Andy Farrell in particular was a clear man-of-the-match winner."

Acting Giants coach Phil Veivers added: "I've already told the players to bury this one and concentrate on the next game.

"We cannot afford to make the number of errors that we did today against a class side like Wigan.
