Under 20s: Wigan 40 Harlequins 22
Posted by Bilko on May 14 2011 - 15:31

Wigan Warriors v Harlequins - Under 20s Valvoline Cup.
Saturday 14th May 2011. Kick Off 2:00pm at Co-Operative Stadium, Orrell.

Match Report

Have to say, this was a pretty dull game to stand and watch at a cold Orrell on Saturday. A strong Wigan outfit never really got out of first gear in dispatching the Harlequins side.

An amusing sight was the touch judge on my side of the field first half who for some reason wearing goggles. Not sure what all that was about. On the field, Wigan took the lead inside just two minutes and never looked back from that. Darrell Goulding claimed it, although Jack Murphy's conversion was wide.

Further tries came in the 9th and 13th minutes. First Ryan King did well to get over in the right corner before Murphy scored himself on the opposite. Wigan were not making the conversions easy but although Murphy converted from the right, he couldn't nail the extras from the left.

So 14-0 in 13 minutes, you wondered if this would be a complete walkover like Friday Night's first team game but it was Quins who hit back with a try on 22 minutes from Billy Driver, scoring in the left corner but Mike Bishay couldn't convert.

Wigan though soon scored again up the other end. Lovely break from Ryan King was well supported by Prop Forward Tom Spencer who still had 25 metres to run before crashing under the posts. Murphy's conversion made it 20-4 and thats how it stuck until half time.

Into the second half and Wigan's London lad Jamie Acton, signed in pre season from Hemel Stags, came off the bench and took just five minutes to score. He started in the centres but has converted to the second row in recent weeks were he certainly looks the part with his strong physique. He claimed a close range effort but Murphy missed his third conversion from five, leaving the score at 24-4.

Wigan though went on a bit of a rally after that. Goulding claimed his second try before a marauding from from Acton set up the field position for hooker Liam Carberry to sneak over from close range. Then on the hour Tom Spencer capped off an excellent personal display with his second try from close range. Murphy converted the latter two of those three tries to leave Wigan with a 40-4 lead.

Into the last twenty minutes and the heavens opened with heavy rain and Wigan to be honest looked like they'd rather just get off the park. In fairness I knew how they felt, it was cold and I'd had enough myself. Didn't really help them that Amos Roberts kicking game from his Stand Off position was about as testing as learning the 1 times table!

Credit Quins though they claimed three late tries to make the score respectable. All similar tries really, taking advantage of soft defence on Wigan's right hand side. All from pretty close range, Dan Sarginson went over twice either side of a try for Kieron Dixon. All three were converted by Mike Bishay which left the final score at Wigan 40 Harlequins 22.

Next week the Under 20s travel away to St Helens for the return mini derby. Wigan beat St Helens at this level 40-22 only last month at Orrell, the return match takes place next Saturday, Kick Off 2:30pm at Liverpool St Helens Rugby Union.
