2019 review: July & August

2019 review: July & August

With the 2019 Betfred Super League season at an end, we take a look back at the year, month by month.

The Warriors began July with an emphatic 52-10 over Hull KR at the DW Stadium.

Liam Farrell went over for two touch downs, whilst Liam Marshall bagged himself a hat-trick to trounce the East Yorkshire side.

Meanwhile Zak Hardaker, George Williams, Oliver Gildart and Joe Burgess also added their names to the scoresheet as Wigan made it five games unbeaten.

The winning run unfortunately came to an end the following week, as Adrian Lam’s side were beaten by St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

A single Hardaker try was not enough for the Warriors as they suffered a 32-10 defeat.

Farrell was a hat-trick hero, bagging his third with 10 minutes of play remaining.

Willie Isa, Jake Shorrocks and Jarrod Sammut were also amongst the scorers in the 46-16 victory.

The first game in August was not as straight forward, as a drop-goal was once again needed in East Yorkshire to come away with the two points.

This time it was Hull FC who created a close contest, with Hardaker kicking from 40 metres out to record a 15-14 win.

Both of the Wigan tries came through Marshall either side of half-time, as the gap closed between themselves and Lee Radford’s outfit.

The Warriors took another step closer to third place the following week, with Hull KR being the visitors to the DW once again.

Burgess claimed his 100th try for the Club, as he was one of five scorers in the 36-18 win, with Farrell also bagging two.

August ended with another victory, as Wigan made it nine wins in 10 games with two points against Warrington Wolves on Heritage Day at the DW.

Bevan French, who had joined the Club mid-season from Parramatta Eels, went over for a try on his first start.

Williams and Hardaker also scored as the Warriors recorded a 20-6 victory to put themselves level on points with the Wolves, as second spot became the next target.
