Wigan Warriors v Wakefield Wildcats - First Utility Super League 20 - Round 7
Friday 27th March 2015. Kick Off 3:00pm at DW Stadium

Match Report - Archived from Official Website

Wigan Warriors got back to winning ways in emphatic style this evening as they demolished Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 52-10 at the DW Stadium.

The Cherry and Whites got off to a flying start in just the 4th minute as Liam Farrell went over, and further scores from Tony Clubb, Lee Mossop, a Dom Manfredi brace, and an Anthony Gelling hat-trick, along with another Farrell effort gave the home side a dominant victory.

Warriors Head Coach Shaun Wane made just the one change from last week's game against Leeds Rhinos with Ryan Hampshire coming in for Matty Bowen at full-back. For the visitors Tim Smith, Jacob Miller and Danny Kirmond missed out with Daniel Smith, Tom Johnstone and Jarrod Sammut all starting.

It didn't take long for the Cherry and Whites to get the opening try as a great break from John Bateman put Wigan deep Wildcats territory, Joe Burgess took a brilliant catch then produced an even better offload under pressure to Liam Farrell who scored under the posts. Matty Smith converted to make it 6-0 with four on the clock.

The visitors were rattled and Wigan very nearly got their second try just minutes later as a fantastic break by Dan Sarginson nearly put Liam Farrell in for his second but the referee deemed a knock-on had taken place.

Matty Smith increased Wigan's lead in the 12th minute opting to take the two points after Craig Hall had intercepted but was deemed to be in an offside position.

Wigan were looking dangerous and got their second try just three minutes later as Tony Clubb dummied and strolled in to get his first four pointer of the season, Smith added the extras making it 14-0.

Dom Manfredi was next to get himself on the scoresheet as he side-stepped his opposite number Chris Riley and slid over in the corner, after a slick Warriors passing move. Smith once again kicked the additional two from the touchline to make it 20-0 in as many minutes.

Wakefield did respond though as the Warriors were penalised for taking Jarrod Sammut out while chasing a kick. The Wildcats exploited good field position with Riley this time sneaking past Dom Manfredi to go over in the corner, Craig Hall's conversion was unsuccessful to leave it at 20-4 after half an hour.

The home side quelled any potential Wakefield fight back six minutes later as Anthony Gelling read the Wakefield attacking move and intercepted to run unopposed under the sticks. Smith kept up his 100% record and added the additional two to make it a half time score of 26-4.

The second period was scruffy to begin with however Dom Manfredi soon extended Wigan's lead as he went over from an Anthony Gelling pass. Smith could not kick the difficult conversion so it stayed 30-4 with 48 minutes gone.

The Wildcats were not lying down though and Paul McShane gave them a glimmer of hope as he barged over from close range four minutes later to reduce the deficit, Hall converted to make it 30-10.

Any hope of the visitors making a comeback was diminished in the 57th minute as man of the match Lee Mossop ran a great line and powered his way over for his second score since returning to the Wigan Club. Smith once more kicked the extras to make it 36-10.

Dan Sarginson took a quick penalty tap two minutes later, and offloaded to Liam Farrell who raced 40 metres to grab his second try of the game in spectacular fashion, Smith was on target again to make it 42-10 and Wigan were on a roll.

Wigan were rampant now and a fantastic pass by Matty Smith allowed Ryan Hampshire to break with Joel Tomkins in support. Tomkins' offload was finished off by Anthony Gelling. Smith added his 150th Wigan goal with the conversion, to make it 48-10 with nine minutes left.

It got even better for centre Gelling as he completed his hat-trick just moments later taking a great Manfredi offload, Smith was unable to convert on this occasion so it stayed at 52-10.

A good night at the office for the Warriors and exactly what was required ahead of the huge Good Friday derby with St Helens.
