Match Report

Remarkably Wigan won 84-6 for the second Easter Monday in a row which meant their record league victory was equalled here against Bradford.

It was also our record home league win beating the 78-4 score against Workington in August 1996 and also Bradford's record defeat, which previously had been a 75-18 loss at Leeds in September 1931.

Bradford had an all teenage bench but Francis Cummins post match criticism of his experienced players perhaps spoke a lot for this game. "Some stood up and some didn't" was his assessment.

Wigan were white hot but the fact we've scored 15 tries and the wingers between them only accounted for one of those scores says an awful lot. When you get blow out scores it's often just the pace and passing out wide that see's the opposition unable to cope but the Bulls couldn't cope up the middle and that has to be deeply worrying.

12 different try scorers must be a Super League record for Wigan as well. Bradford had just 11 when they set the league record win of 96-16 over Salford in 2000.

That record was looking easily beaten with twenty minutes to go as Wigan stood with a 78-0 lead but they slowed down considerably in the final quarter and became quite sloppy.

Let's not be critical of that last twenty though because we'd had seen some superb tries in an almost error free and breathtakingly clinical first hour by a Wigan side showing no mercy to the beleaguered Bulls. 

I'm not going to review every try by try as I'll be here all day. So just to add that Gil Dudson's try was his first in a competitive match for Wigan. Ryan Sutton had a good debut on an albeit easy day. Goal kicking was pleasing with Ryan Hampshire and George Williams combining to convert 12 of the fifteen tries.

I also have to mention the play of the day. It wasn't any of the 15 Wigan tries but Liam Farrell's effort to chase down a breaking away Elliott Kear for a full 70-80 metres. That was a hell of an effort from a second rower on a winger. Massive wraps for that!

Finally I wish Bradford's Oliver Roberts all the best. It looks like he broke his ankle in just his third career appearance. Surely he'll never have a day worse than this.
