Hull FC 14-10 Wigan Warriors: Highlights, Player Ratings and Talking Points

Hull FC have made it back to back wins as they stunned Wigan Warriors 14-10 tonight.


From a McIntosh drop to a McIntosh
It is rare that we see a player drop a ball and then score a try a minute later but Darnell McIntosh did that. He seemed to knock on a Harry Smith kick but a penalty was given for offside. He didn’t drop Jake Clifford’s kick in behind the Wigan defence a minute later on the second tackle.

Clifford carves through
Hull were playing brilliantly and after a top drive from Josh Griffin, Jake Clifford took advantage of some disarray in the Wigan defence reaching over to ground. He later added a penalty to make it 14-0.

Thornley crowns comeback
After making a superb break to get Wigan down field it would be the man himself Iain Thornley who got Wigan got Wigan’s first try after a sublime scrum move down the left.

Thornley makes it too
After a lovely kick to the corner gave Wigan an attacking set of six, a lovely move down the left saw Thornley squeeze in at the corner.

Bizarre moment
It was as crazy a moment as you will see in rugby league. A barn storming run from Ligi Sao created disarray in the Wigan defence and Hull looked set to capitalise as Danny Houghton grubbered through but the ball bounced away from McIntosh and the line and we nearly saw Bevan French in full flight as he picked up the ball and sped away.

Talking Points:

Trueman sin bin wins game
It doesn’t seem right that a sin bin should win a game but his sin bin bailed out youngster Davy Litten after his knock on gifted Wigan Warriors a huge chance to win the match. His holding on allowed Hull to reset.

Guts from Hull
Tony Smith has always been open about culture being key to success and today we saw the grit and determination Hull need to begin to build a successful era at the club.

Errors and ill-discipline kill the Warriors
Wigan were their own worst enemy tonight. Not only did they fall 14-0 behind but their errors and ill-discipline undercut them again and again.
