Liam Marshall celebrates a try in Wigan’s win over Warrington

Liam Marshall’s second hat-trick in as many games helped Wigan Warriors on their way to a 32-6 derby victory over Warrington Wolves in Friday’s Betfred Super League match.

A converted try from Ben Currie had Warrington 6-4 up at the break, with Sam Halsall’s unconverted score on the stroke of half time – just moments after the Wolves had blown an opportunity to go further in front – ensuring Wigan remained in touching distance.

Jake Bibby put the hosts in the ascendancy with a try four minutes into the second half and then three tries in the space of 14 minutes from Marshall saw the Warriors take the game beyond their opponents’ reach before Jai Field’s late try put the seal on things.

The Wolves were not without their own opportunities when the game was still in the balance, but were ruthlessly punished for failing to make the most of them and remain in danger of being dragged into the Super League relegation battle.
