Two tries apiece from Jake Bibby and Liam Marshall helped Wigan Warriors get the Matt Peet era underway with a 24-10 win away to Hull Kingston Rovers in the Betfred Super League.

Bibby’s two opportunist tries helped Wigan into an 18-8 lead at the break at Sewell Group Craven Park, with Jai Field crossing for one on his return after a long spell out injured and Marshall landing a sucker punch with a length-of-the-field finish on the counter-attack.

Rovers’ sole score of the first 40 minutes had come on the back of a fine solo run from Mikey Lewis, but Marshall’s second just after the hour proved enough to seal the win for Wigan in their opening fixture in the 2022 campaign.
