2019 review: June

2019 review: June

With the 2019 Betfred Super League season at an end, we take a look back at the year, month by month.

June kick started an excellent run of form for the Warriors, which saw the season completely transform.

It was still a far from easy start to the month, as a late Sam Powell drop-goal from 45 metres out was required to clinch a 19-18 victory against Hull KR at KCOM Craven Park.

After tries from George Williams, Dan Sarginson, Joe Burgess and Liam Marshall, the game was level at 18-18, and needed a moment of brilliance from the hooker to get the vital one point.

Powell was at it again the following week, as he bagged another drop-goal.

This time it was in less dramatic circumstances, as he added to Oliver Gildart’s try and two Hardaker penalties, to send the Warriors into half-time leading against Leeds Rhinos at Emerald Headingley Stadium.

After the break, Oliver Partington went over for his first ever Wigan try, before Tony Clubb got one in the last minute to put the game beyond any doubt with a 23-14 victory.

Adrian Lam’s side were back in Yorkshire once again the following week, this time taking on Huddersfield Giants at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Chris Hankinson, who was in great kicking form for the second week running, went over for the first try of the game.

Sean O’Loughlin and Tommy Leuluai were also amongst the scorers, as the Warriors went over six times in a 38-22 victory.

Liam Marshall scores against Huddersfield.

To finish a strong month, Wigan returned home and made it four wins in their last four with a 28-12 win against Salford Red Devils at the DW Stadium.

Marshall was at the double to help Lam’s side move up into the Play-Off spots, which looked a long way off only four weeks prior.
