Zak Hardaker threw the penalty that sealed Wigan’s victory

Zak Hardaker’s penalty 14 minutes to go was enough to keep the Wigan Warriors on their unbeaten Super League record with a 16-14 victory over Hull FC.

Jackson Hastings scored a try and put one on for Liam Farrell to help Wigan take a 10-8 halftime lead at DW Stadium, with the acrobatic effort from Adam Swift and the kick from Marc Sneyd keeping Hull within touching distance.

Mahe Fonua’s try six minutes after the restart put Brett Hodgson’s men in the lead, Sneyd scoring a second penalty, but Jake Bibby’s sixth try of the season and then Hardaker’s goal saw the League Leaders winners Last year’s Shield won five out of five wins.

However, the victory was marred by a racist abuse complaint against a Wigan player by André Savelio second to Hull in the first half.
