10th August 2003: Wigan 40 Halifax 0

Wigan Warriors v Halifax - Tetley's Super League XIII Round 22.
Sunday 10th August 2003. Kick Off 3:00pm at JJB Stadium.

Wigan reclaimed third spot in Tetley's Super League table as they predictably proved too strong for rock-bottom Halifax.

It was a club record-equalling 21st consecutive defeat for the Yorkshire side and the match was all over by half-time with the Warriors running up a 30-0 lead and Halifax suffering a double injury blow, losing both Dane Dorahy and Jaymes Chapman.

The Halifax defence stood firm for the opening 11 minutes until second-rower Stephen Wild - making only his second start after an horrific knee ligament injury earlier this season - struck twice to get the Warriors motoring.

Crowd-pleasing Irish winger Brian Carney set up the first with a terrific 50-yard break up the middle and then the floodgates opened.

By half-time, the Warriors had the points well and truly in the bag after running in another four tries.

Teenage scrum-half Luke Robinson, getting his chance in the absence of Adrian Lam, created one apiece for Brett Dallas and Shaun Briscoe with neat kicks and also combined with half-back partner Sean O'Loughlin to give Wild his second of the half. Skipper Andy Farrell also dummied his way over and converted all five first-half scores.

Robinson was again involved in supplying the final pass for in-form Kiwi prop forward Craig Smith to claim Wigan's sixth try before Halifax had Ged Corcoran sinbinned twice for holding on.

Wigan could afford the luxury of giving a second-half breather to both Farrell and Terry Newton ahead of Friday's big test against Leeds.

Danny Sculthorpe marked his return after injury by crashing over for Wigan's seventh try after a superb offload from Wild.
