Wigan 16-14 Hull FC: Player ratings and three major talking points

Wigan and Hull FC went toe-to-toe tonight with the Warriors eventually running out 16-14 winners, but just what were the three major talking points and how did they players rate?

1. The battle of the fullbacks

All week the talk had been about Zak Hardaker versus Jake Connor and it didn’t disappoint. The two ruffled each other’s feathers all night, with Connor being shown a yellow card for a high tackle on Hardaker. Connor appeared rattled throughout, even slapping Jackson Hastings in the face which allowed Hardaker to send Wigan into a two-point lead at 16-14.

2. The game didn’t disappoint

It was always going to be interesting to see how Hull would fare against their biggest challenge of the year. And, they fared superbly well for the majority of the game. It was tough, tenacious and great to watch as a neutral.

3. Liam Farrell continues to impress

He’s played most of 2021 in the centres, but Liam Farrell is showing no signs of slowing down. A natural second-rower, the Wiganer has adapted to making the number four spot his own in the absence of Oliver Gildart.
