St Helens v Wigan Warriors Tetley's Super League VII Round 13
Friday 6th June 2003 Kick Off 8:00pm at Knowsley Road

CherryandWhite.co.uk Match Report by Rebecca Smith

Wigan come away from Knowsley Road with a gobsmacking win!

Even by Wigan v Saints derby standards this was a fantastic match.

Saints raced into a 20-0 lead within 24 minutes and were playing with more confidence, speed and skill than they have done all season. But a remarkable comeback from Wigan saw them score 36 unanswered points in 35 minutes, including a Luke Robinson hat-trick, to stun the majority of the 13,000 Knowsley Road crowd.

Saints started ominously. They regained possession from the kick off and Martin Gleeson scored in the right corner with less than two minutes played.

Wellens scored their second try, a typical Saints try. Paul Sculthorpe picked up a rebounded kick on the fifth tackle with one hand. Quick hands saw the ball go from Jason Hooper to Chris Joynt who created space for Ade Gardner on the right wing who moved it back inside for Wellens to score.

Paul Sculthorpe converted both and added a penalty when Sean O'Loughlin was sin-binned for obstruction.

When Barry Ward barged his way over in the 24th minute there looked like no way back for a stunned, nervous looking Wigan side. But converted tries from David Hodgson and Luke Robinson before half-time gave them a glimmer of hope.

And it was the Warriors who emerged better from the dressing rooms. Kevin Brown continued to make his case for a starting place every week with a try which came from an Aspinwall break. Farrell was accurate again with the conversion and Wigan to cut the Saints lead to just two points.

Within minutes the Warriors went ahead. Luke Robinson touched down Nick Graham's kick into the in-goal area as Martin Gleeson was trying to kick it dead. Farrell's fourth successful kick gave Wigan a 24-20 lead.

That lead was stretched to 16 points thanks to Kevin Brown's second try and Luke Robinson's third.

But with 20 minutes remaining Saints brought themselves back in it with tries from Ade Gardner then Darren Smith. Sculthorpe missed the Gardner conversion but Farrell was accurate with a penalty to give Wigan enough breathing space to withstand a last minute try from Darren Smith.
