Wigan book Grand Final place

Wigan Warriors booked their place back in the Super League Grand Final after a 29-2 victory over Hull FC.

Hull took the lead early on, as Marc Sneyd scored a penalty after Harry Smith was penalised for holding down.

The crucial moment came soon after, as Ligi Sao forced a knock on from Willie Isa. In their celebrations, Josh Griffin patted Ollie Partington on the head and gave away a penalty.

From the resulting field position, Wigan got their first try as Joe Burgess cut inside to score. Zak Hardaker hit the conversion for a four-point lead.

Wigan got their second try just past the half-hour as Burgess kicked back in-field and Smith broke free for the try. Hardaker added the conversion.

Smith also added a drop-goal with the last play of the half.

The Warriors got the first try of the second half, as Hardaker broke free and went over under the posts. He then added the conversion.

The hosts then settled the match with less than 10 minutes to go, as Smith’s cutout pass found Jake Bibby, who went over in the corner. Hardaker was off-target with the conversion.

Wigan added a cherry on top of their performance with one more try. Oliver Gildart broke out of dummy half, and gave the ball to Bevan French to score. Hardkaer was back on target.

That means Wigan will take to the KCOM Stadium for the Super League Grand Final. They will find out tomorrow if they play St Helens or Catalans Dragons.
