CherryandWhite.co.uk Match Report by Rebecca Smith

The Warriors got back to winning ways with a workmanlike defeat of Wakefield on Friday night.

Adrian Lam shone for Wigan, directing play, scoring two tries and creating two more.

Brett Dallas continued to stake his claim for a new contract scoring a brace of tries to go with his hat trick last week.

Wakefield threatened an upset when they clawed their way back to within four points after the Warriors had raced to a 16-0 lead. But the Wildcats just couldn't keep it up after the loss of the influential Adrian Vowles.

Brett Dallas got the scoring underway after seven minutes. He strolled over the line unopposed thanks to a clever pass out of the tackle from teenager Gareth Hock who came off the subs bench when Paul Johnson was stretchered off. Johnson fell heavily in a two man tackle that was placed on report.

Andy Farrell missed with his first conversion but did convert his own try five minutes later.

He was again on target after Mick Cassidy scored his 50th career try.

Colum Halpenny exploited a gaping hole in the Wigan defence and sprinted to the try line. Jamie Rooney added the extras and another penalty to give the visitors half-time hope at 16-8.

And within minutes of the second half the Wildcats scored again. David march managed to ground the ball despite the attentions of four Wigan defenders.

But the Warriors then turned up the heat. Dallas got his second and was followed by Briscoe and the brace from Adrian Lam who earned the players player of the match award and praise from his coach. 'He showed some good touches and I think the way we are playing has taken some pressure off him and allowed him to get his running game going.'
