LIVERPOOL ST HELENS 55 WIGAN 0
Liverpool St Helens put the previous week’s poor performance well behind them with an outstanding display against a young looking Wigan side. Keen to return to winning ways they showed no mercy to their near neighbours rattling up five tries by half time and adding four more in the second half. Just as satisfying was the absence of any score in the points against column.
After a cautious opening, LSH went ahead in the 14th minute when skipper Darren Wilson crossed after a decisive break from Sam Molyneux. 5-
LSH added another just before the break when Mark Potter picked up and scored from short range after Matt Cunliffe had been stopped just short of the line. 29-
The second half was notable for an excellent hat-
Phil Kearns came off the bench in the second half and delighted the Moss Lane Faithful when scoring with a typical short range effort after a strong LSH drive. 48-
