Official Report / Commentary

A try four minutes from time by Zak Hardaker gave Wigan Warriors a dramatic 30-26 Betfred Super League victory over Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The Red Devils led a thrilling encounter 26-24 when, on the last tackle, George Williams regained his own kick and the Warriors moved the ball to the right and Hardaker raced in under the posts for the match-winning try – which he also converted.

Wigan, still without seven first team regulars, looked to be in control of the game as they raced into an early 14-0 lead but they had to repel a stunning second-half fightback from the hosts before claiming a hard-earned two points.


Joe Greenwood claimed two tries for Wigan with the others coming from Joe Burgess, Joe Bullock and Hardaker, who also kicked five goals.

Salford claimed tries through George Griffin, Adam Walker, Joey Lussick and Niall Evalds. Krisnan Inu kicked five goals.
