Match Report

Good homework from Wigan ahead of this game. Albert Kelly may have impressed in attack for Hull KR this season but defensively he leads the league in both missed tackles and errors. Wigan went at him on their left side attack to massive joy in the opening twenty minutes of this contest.

It proved to be a double target also with Kevin Larroyer's late withdrawal seeing twenty year old Josh Gudzek start only his second appearance on the right wing opposite Joe Burgess. He proved to be a lamb to the slaughter.

Wigan scored six tries in the opening 20 minutes and five of them came on the left side. Dom Crosby powered over first for his second try in consecutive matches. Then Joe Burgess and George Williams combined for the former to score. Liam Farrell went through some weak defending for a third try before Burgess claimed a second.

Joel Tomkins ghosted through for the fifth try but this one was scored on the right side before Wigan returned to the left with Williams feigning to kick which fooled  defenders into opening up space for him to pounce. Matty Smith converted five of the tries for a 34-0 lead.

Amazingly, no further scoring came until half time. Micky McIlorum went off and, as often is the case, the pace visibly slows down when this happens. Just shows how good a player he is. With the match already won their was no point in him returning.

Sam Powell saw out the rest of the game at hooker with Taulima Tautai also getting big game time with Tony Clubb picking up a knock. Wigan found a try just four minutes after half time with a kick from Williams being won in the air by Burgess who offloaded to get Dan Sarginson over.

Conversion made it 40-0 and it was now a case of how many. Dom Manfredi made a nice finish for 44-0 before a great diagonal burst from Tautai saw him claim his first try of his Wigan career for 50-0.

Williams then claimed the best try of the night. He took the Rovers defence on and beat seven defenders to score a blinder for 56-0. Burgess then cherry caked the performance with his hat-trick claimed with three minutes to go. Smith converted eight out of the eleven tries in total for a 60-0 final score.

Terry Campese, Shaun Lunt and Josh Mantellato would be three big returns for Rovers ahead of the cup tie replay in two weeks but Rovers had a lot of work still to do to stop Wigan in this white hot form.
