CherryandWhite.co.uk Match Report by Rebecca Smith

10 Try Treat

Stuart Raper was given some selection dilemmas ahead of the Challenge Cup Final after an impressive display from his youngsters in an easy win over relegation favourites Warrington. It was a morale boosting performance and fortunately, no further injuries were picked up.

The Wolves recieved a ten-try thrashing that sees them continue to prop up the Super League table.

Raper had six first team players missing for this clash but every man on the field made a bid for a starting spot at Murrayfield.

Particularly impressive was 17 year-old debutant Luke Robinson. The diminutive scrum half was a pleasure to watch. He played with real enthusiasm and displayed more attacking options than any half-back combination has done so far this season.

Another great performance came from Craig Smith. The big prop had his best game yet and proved his fitness by playing three quarters of the match. Smith scored the first try after just five minutes, taking the ball from David Hodgson who had stolen it from Dale Cordoza.

Stephen Wild was next to take advantage of awful Warrington defence, going over on fifteen minutes.

Three minutes later Farrell burst through the Wolves' line and set Radlinski of on a run to the line. The full back put the ball down under the posts and with Farrell converting all three Wigan had an 18-0 lead.

Warrington hit back with an unconverted try from Lee Penny on 19 minutes but that was to be their only score of the night.

Cassidy added another try before the break and although Farrell missed the conversion, he did add a penalty to take a 24-4 advantage into half-time.

Warrington's defence was even worse in the second period. New coach David Plange needs to take his players back to basics and remind them how to tackle.

Not long after the restart, Farrell was replaced by brother-in-law Sean O'Loughlin who duly provided two tries.

Brian Carney also scored twice in the second half and so staked his claim for wing selection at Murrayfield. The Irishman was a constant thorn in Warrington's side with devastating runs through their defence.

Mark Smith and Martin Aspinwall were the other try scorers with Julian O'Neill taking over kicking responsibilities after Farrell took his well deserved rest.

Wigan's performance will give hope to even the most pessimistic of Warriors supporters who believe St.Helens only have to turn up at Murrayfield to be handed the cup.
