World News – GB – Wigan gives St Helens a French lesson to get ahead of rivals at the top of the Super League


The excellent Bevan French was once again magnificent as Wigan recorded their first derby victory over St Helens in six attempts, edging out their fierce rivals in the process to rise to the top of the Super League with the impending play-offs Clubs will vote on Monday on whether to end the regular season earlier and extend the play-offs to create more drama in the final weeks of the campaign

If they approve such a move, the Warriors now appear favorites to claim the league leader’s shield and deny St Helens the chance to finish first for a third consecutive season, after overcoming a deficit in mid- time to defeat the reigning champions 18-6 in a game packed with everything you expect from derby: intensity, physicality and gripping fun Led 6-4 at halftime after Lachlan Coote try and convert putting the Saints ahead, Wigan was exceptional in the second half, as was the French, who is surely among the big favorites to win the Man of Steel award this season The Australian’s future at Wigan remains uncertain, with a return to the NRL still possible for 2021 Wigan, on this show, will desperately want to keep it

After Tommy Leuluai’s solo effort gave Wigan the advantage, the French attacked the St Helens defense with a superb run, bypassing Coote to place the Warriors further, before Jackson Hastings sealed the victory for the Warriors in the final minutes

The Saints’ loss cuts the gap between them and third-placed Warrington, who remains firmly in search of a top-two spot after a hard-won 19-12 win over Huddersfield The Giants, who have now lost four back-to-back games by eight points or less, led shortly after half-time when James Gavet’s try put them 10-8 ahead

However, a superb long-range try completed by Daryl Clark, who previously scored Warrington’s first try, and a fine finish from Anthony Gelling helped Wolves improve their winning percentage, with a goal of Gareth Widdop who put the seal their victory

Huddersfield had to denounce a crucial first half injury to his perhaps crucial half-back Lee Gaskell It certainly looks like one of Wigan, Warrington or St Helens will win the Super title League in Hull at the end of next month, although a proposal to extend the play-offs to five, if not six, teams on Monday could open the door for Hull FC and Challenge Cup holders, Leeds, however, they will have to d ‘first to go beyond the tastes of French: this is no small task
