Young Warriors Humble Hull FC

After an extended break due to the postponement of the Castleford home game, Wigan U19s returned to action with the hosting of Hull FC who currently sit third in the table post-split.

A rapid start from the Warriors saw Kieran Sherratt cross for the opening try on seven minutes with Jake Shorrocks converting for 6-0 before a reply from FC saw Harry Tyson-Wilson score a self converted try to level at 6-6. Oliver Gildart regained the lead for the hosts with a try that may be the reason he's been included in the senior squad this week with Shorrocks converting for 12-6.

Brad Lawrence and Gabriel Fell added further tries before the interval with Shorrocks converting only the latter for 22-6 at half-time. Liam Forsyth extended the lead for the hosts just seven minutes after the restart with Shorrocks converting for 28-6.

Jez Litten cut the gap with a try on 51 minutes for 28-10 but it proved to be in vain as Wigan ran in four tries in nine minutes through Josh Ganson, and Jack Higginson either side of a second effort from Gabriel Fell before Callum Field struck with Shorrocks converting all four  for a huge 50-10 lead.

Josh Poskitt stemmed the Warriors' spree with a try on 73 minutes which Tyson-Wilson converted for a 50-16 final score.
