  • FT | Wigan Warriors 32-10 Toronto Wolfpack

Liam Farrell believes it was the sheer fitness of his Wigan Warriors side that gained them three tries in the last 16 minutes to see off Toronto Wolfpack on Thursday night.

In what was the first meeting between the two clubs, Wigan eased to their second win of the 2020 Betfred Super League campaign with six tries overall, including two from Farrell, to complete the 32-10 scoreline. The Warriors were given a helping hand five minutes before full time as Hakim Miloudi was sent to the sin bin for a dangerous tackle on Sean O’Loughlin.

Speaking to Wigan TV after the game, second row Farrell said: “We started well. Our completions were really high and we kept hold of the ball and had patience in our game. We went into half time with it being quite close but we felt like we were in a good position and we grind them down with them being a bit fatigued.

“We probably came out in the second half and didn’t perform where we wanted to – we gave them a bit of a leg up and confidence. But, as the game went on we started to wear them down again and towards the back end points came our way.”

Farrell celebrates scoring with the South Stand crowd.
