In a match was marred by racism allegations against Tony Clubb, Wigan made it five wins from five in Super League with a hard fought and ugly win against Hull FC.

It ended another unbeaten run in Super League whilst also seeing Wigan equal their best ever start to a Super League campaign, matching the starts to 1998, 2000 & 2016.

Although Wigan managed to score what for them was an early try by the standards of this season, in the 10th Minute - they never really kicked on with the interchange bench like we've seen in most games this season.

That try came off the back of a poor error by Mahe Fonua from which Jackson Hastings sold a dummy to Andre Savelio then went himself to score. Zak Hardaker converted for 6-0.

Hull responded six minutes later after Bevan French was deemed to have knocked on. Jake Connor squeezed Adam Swift in the left corner before Marc Sneyd converted for 6-6.

Like I said the game never really shifted from the interchange period and remained a bitty affair. Summed up in the 32nd Minute when Connor was sin binned by referee James Child for a high tackle on Hardaker. Zak was left bloodied and he thought the high tackle had caused it but his head actually collided with Ben McNamara to cause that.

Given the yellow card, Wigan opted against going for goal and tapping instead but it soon turned to be a poor decision. In fact Hull looked for likely to score with 12 men and actually kicked a penalty goal from Sneyd to go ahead after Liam Farrell was guilty of going high on Mahe Fonua.

But Wigan went in front before half time with Hastings sending Farrell on a short run to the line but Hardaker failed to convert, so it was only 10-8 at the break.

With Connor still in the sin bin, Wigan were mightily lucky to get away with a shocking pass from Harry Smith ending up going back into the in goal but the ball touched Josh Griffin to cause a knock on. So, so lucky.

Hull though did retake the lead with a return to full strength. A good kick by Sneyd saw Fonua pluck it out the air against French in the air to touch down and make it 12-10 to Hull despite Sneyd missing the kick. He added a penalty five minutes later though for 14-10 to compound a poor Wigan start to the second half.

The score soon became level again with Jake Bibby finishing well on 58 minutes to make it 14-14 with Hardaker missing another conversion. Yes he facing plenty of difficult kicks out wide but a 60% conversion rate remains a worry.

Wigan did look cool and controlled in the final quarter and sealed the game with a penalty goal on 67 minutes. Jake Connor, who had been sin binned earlier, gave away a soft penalty for interference. He was supposed to be showing his quality towards England selection but unfortunately he cost his team with his sin bin, that penalty and also ended up with a suspension for next weeks cup tie. The watching Shaun Wane will have felt his decision to omit him was justified.

Although it was a slender lead, Wigan looked comfortable defending it out and took the win to end Hull's unbeaten start to the season.
