Super League: Wigan Warriors maintain unbeaten record with 16-14 win over Hull FC

Zak Hardaker’s penalty kick 14 minutes from time proved enough for Wigan Warriors to preserve their unbeaten Super League record with a 16-14 win over Hull FC.

Jackson Hastings scored a try and set one up for Liam Farrell to help Wigan into a 10-8 lead at half-time at the DW Stadium, with Adam Swift’s acrobatic effort and the kicking of Marc Sneyd keeping Hull in touching distance.

Mahe Fonua’s try six minutes after the restart put Brett Hodgson’s men ahead, with Sneyd notching a second penalty, but Jake Bibby’s sixth try of the season and then Hardaker’s goal saw last year’s League Leaders Shield winners make it five wins from five.
