St Helens v Wigan Warriors - Tetley's Super League VI Round 23
Friday 10th August 2001. Kick Off 8:00pm at Knowsley Road

Match Report

St Helens produced an awesome display to put Wigan in the shade at Knowsley Road.

Two tries from Paul Wellens along with scores from Peter Shiels, Paul Sculthorpe and Tim Jonkers sealed a memorable win for the home side.

Wigan battled hard and remained in contention with tries from Terry Newton and Paul Johnson, but the Saints were always on top.

Kieron Cunningham, who this week turned down an offer to switch codes and join Swansea, was in outstanding form.

Cunningham said afterwards that the character and determination showed by his team-mates was influential in his decision to remain at Knowsley Road.

"It was an absolutely outstanding performance. It showed the true spirit of the club and was one of the reasons I decided to stay," said Cunningham.

The Warriors gave St Helens an early shock when Newton took advantage of some great play by Mick Cassidy and Brian Carney on the blind side to run in.

That was the jolt the home side needed and within 10 minutes Shiels jumped higher than Brett Dallas from Sculthorpe's kick to go over.

It was all Saints after that with Wellens going over for his first after a lightning pass from Keiron Cunningham.

Andy Farrell kicked a penalty to reduce the deficit to 16-8, but Saints broke again with another great ball from Cunningham finding the impressive Sculthorpe for his try.

The writing was on the wall for Wigan after the break, but to their credit they incessantly pressed Saints towards their tryline.

Saints skipper Chris Joynt held his troops firm but the visitors soon utilised the great forward momentum which had seen them rise to the top of the table when Paul Johnson went over for his 12th try of the season.

Kevin Iro and Wigan's Steve Renouf were involved in a scuffle which saw both players sin binned and that seemed to spur Saints rather than Wigan.

After Farrell's penalty, the home side put the nail in the coffin when Jonkers went over to the delight of the Knowsley Road faithful.

Saints coach Ian Millward was understandably delighted with his team's performance.

"I'm really proud of the players," said Millward.

"We were under a lot of pressure. Wigan were on a big roll and we had to defend for long periods."

Warriors coach Stuart Raper was gracious in defeat, praising the quality of St Helens' play.

"You've got to give credit to St Helens. They played some outstanding footie and their ball control was very good," said Raper.
