Wigan defeat Warrington in Super League

Update: 10:52AM SUPER League champions Wigan rediscovered their defensive steel to condemn error-ridden Warrington to a second home defeat in three matches in Thursday night's grand final re-match.

England second-rower Liam Farrell scored one try and sent acting captain Blake Green over for another as the Warriors claimed a thoroughly deserved 12-4 victory that lifts them above Warrington into sixth place.

The Wolves were hoping to avenge October's 30-16 defeat at Old Trafford but they were never in the hunt in wet and windy conditions at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, where their only try was an intercept by Gene Ormsby.

The much-anticipated clash of the reigning champions and the pre-season title favourites failed to deliver on quality but there was no doubting the commitment of either side in a full-blooded encounter.
