Match Report as Wigan Warriors scored six tries to defeat London Broncos 36-0 at the brick community stadium.

Jack Farrimond’s quick-fire home debut double was added to with tries from Liam Marshall and Abbas Miski to give the Warriors a 24-0 lead at the break.

Jake Wardle scored twice in quick succession before the hour as the Warriors returned to action on home soil with a win.


Wigan were quick off the mark as Jack Farrimond marked his home debut with his first senior try for the Club. An inside ball from Bevan French found Farrimond who sold a dummy to cut inside and weave his way over the try line, converting his own score for 6-0.

A few minutes later and Wigan threatened again as a testing high ball on the last saw two London players trying to catch the ball at the bacl and knocking it forward to give Wigan a scrum 10m out. The resulting play saw a ball fired out to Abbas Miski but the winger was just seen into touch by Miloudi for the turnover of possession.

After 13 minutes Jack Farrimond was in again for his and Wigan’s second of the evening. A great break on the right edge from Junior Nsemba allowed the second rower to send Farrimond flying onto a ball and in under the sticks. Farrimond converted his own score once more to make it 12-0.

Liam Marshall added a third in the 22nd minute as a fired out pass from Bevan French to Liam Marshall saw the prolific winger easing over on the left edge. Farrimond converted on the touchline as Wigan made it 18-0.

London thought they’d responded through Ugo Tison in the 27th minute as the interchange made a dart for the goal line but a great tackle from Zach Eckersley saw the ball come free before it was grounded as the video referee chalked off the effort and it remained 18-0.

Abbas Miski finished off the first half scoring in the 36th minute as a scrum for the Warriors from close range saw quick hands from Hampshire to French out to Miski to score on the right edge. Farrimond nailed the touchline conversion as Wigan went to 24-0 at the break.

London were reduced to 12-players when Emmanuel Waine was shown a yellow card for a tackle which forced Kruise Leeming off on 45 minutes. The Warriors almost extended their lead minutes later when Marshall accelerated down the wing, however, his pass inside was collected by Lee Kershaw.

The Warriors widened their advantage on 50 minutes when Farrimond burst through a gap in the defensive line before passing to Wardle on his lift who ran in to score. Farrimond continued his perfect record from the tee to make the score 30-0.

A fantastic piece of defensive work from the Warriors forced a Broncos error from which Wigan scored a sixth try when Wardle finished off a direct move out the scrum. Farrimond added the extras to make the score 36-0 before the hour.

The Warriors continued to apply pressure to the London defence as an unfortunate handling error denied Farrimond his hat-trick before Miski saw a second try ruled out due a forward pass on 63 minutes.

Despite London’s best efforts to break through the Warriors defensive line, which saw a try ruled out in the final minutes, the visitors were unable to score any points as Wigan recorded a victory to nil heading into the international break.
