Wigan scrap to win over London

Wigan Warriors notched their third straight win as they came from behind to defeat London 18-8.

In what was a scrappy game, second-half tries from Chris Hankinson and Morgan Escare saw the Warriors overcome an 8-6 half-time deficit.

A converted Jay Pitts try and Kieran Dixon goal had nudged the Broncos ahead at the break, which had cancelled out a Jake Shorrocks opener.

But Elliot Kear’s knock-on allowed Chris Hankinson to pounce in the second-half, and from there Wigan found some rhythm and sealed the game through Escare.

London have now lost eight games on the bounce in all competitions.

Wigan: Hardaker, Marshall, Hankinson, Gildart, Escare, Williams, J. Shorrocks, Flower, Leuluai, Bullock, Isa, Greenwood, Smithies. Subs: O’Loughlin, Powell, Tautai, Navarrete.
