Wigan Warriors (11/4 Grand Final Winner) reduced St Helens’ (11/10 favs) lead at the top of the table to two points with the help of a hat-trick from Liam Marshall as they ran out 32-6 winners against Warrington Wolves on Friday night.

Matt Peet’s side struggled on occasions in the first half, with Ben Currie opening the scoring for the Wire. Sam Halsall’s equaliser settled matters before Wigan kicked on in the second 40. Jake Bibby crossed before Marshall hit a treble to put the game beyond doubt.

Jai Field continued his fine season when he added a sixth try, and Friday’s result means Warrington are still only four points above bottom club Toulouse.

Peet says his team’s desire pleased him the most, with his side starting to click at the right time.

He told BBC Sport: “In my gut, at the moment, I feel proud; we beat a determined team with loads of good players, but I thought our effort and desire when things didn’t go our way was what made me proud.

“We were confident that the lads wouldn’t give in, and they didn’t. They kept fighting for one another.

“Them scoring didn’t concern us too much; what’s important is our reaction to it, and I thought it was a positive one.”

Elsewhere on Friday evening, Huddersfield Giants secured two points thanks to a 22-16 success over Hull FC. The Giants (10/1 Grand Final Winner) did not lead until the 76th minute, but the result boosted their hopes of a top-four finish.

While there are no Super League matches to come on Saturday, there are three games coming up on Sunday afternoon.

League-leaders St Helens will hope to restore their four-point cushion when they host Castleford Tigers at 13:00, although the Tigers will fancy their chances after winning the previous two meetings between the pair (St Helens 1/4, Draw 22/1, Castleford 3/1 – Match Betting).

Playoff hopefuls Leeds Rhinos and Salford Red Devils will meet at Headingley, with both sides enjoying morale-boosting wins last weekend (Leeds 1/2, Draw 20/1, Salford 13/8 – Match Betting).

Salford thrashed St Helens 44-12, while Leeds came from behind with 12 men to beat Catalans Dragons in Golden Point.

Sunday’s final match comes from the Mobile Rocket Stadium as the Dragons travel to Yorkshire to face Wakefield Trinity (Wakefield 7/5, Draw 20/1, Catalans 4/7 – Match Betting).

Wakefield need to win to move further clear of relegation, while Steve McNamara’s (pictured) men are hoping to bounce back after their collapse against Leeds.
