Super League: Hull KR 26-10 Wigan

Written by on April 27, 2024

Victory for Hull KR returns them to winning ways after last weekend’s defeat by Catalans Dragons as they ensured Wigan lost their second game of the season, leaving them two points off leaders St Helens.

Wigan were uncharacteristically off the pace in the first half, with Hull KR’s opener coming as they cheaply fumbled the ball, allowing the hosts another set and teeing up Sue to eventually touch down.

Gildart made his former side’s night worse as he successfully grounded the ball despite Wigan’s best efforts to thwart him but it was Hull KR’s third try which summed up a half to forget for the visitors.

Hiku showed incredible strength to beat a tackle and race through into space, while he exchanged passes in partnership with Niall Evalds to carve Wigan open and bring up their lead to 18 points at the break.

The Cherry and Whites’ first try came as Miski crashed in at the corner thanks to an impressive looped high pass from Bevan French, who was making his 100th Wigan appearance.

Under pressure from a raucous crowd at Craven Park, however, Adam Keighran missed the extras and Wigan still had plenty to do to claw down the Robins’ first-half advantage.

Luke Thompson arguably should have bridged the gap further, but despite a fortuitous bounce as he raced to the try-line, he could not collect the ball to score what should have been a certain second Wigan try.

Hall gave the hosts what was sure to be a game-winning advantage when avoided going into touch to score at the corner, and Tanginoa put in a lung-busting run to make sure of the two points after the hosts dispossessed Wigan on their own 10-metre mark.

Farrell’s late try came much too late for the Warriors, however it did ensure that he registered 500 career Super League points.
