Shaun Wane is hoping Pat Richards will be returning before too long after the deadly winger limped off in the 56-12 victory over Hull.

Richards scored a hat-trick of tries and kicked seven goals before exiting with a knee injury, although the problem could only be a minor one.

"Pat will have a scan tomorrow, but I don't think it's serious and I think he will be okay," said Wane.

"Pat looked really good for us today and I am hoping he's only got a small cartilage tear, we'll wait and see but I'm hopeful it won't be bad."

Wane pointed to the influence of hooker Michael McIlorum and scrum-half Brett Finch in orchestrating a 10-try demolition of fellow top-four rivals Hull.

Outstanding

The duo each crossed for a try but had a hand in countless others as Wigan maintained their second place in the Stobart Super League table.

"Brett Finch was outstanding and has been consistently good in the halves for us this year. I'm a big fan of his and Thomas Leuluai too," added Wane. "We scored some great tries and I thought Michael McIlorum was outstanding.

"I'm very happy, I thought we played really well. The conditions were poor and it was wet on the pitch before we started, but overall our skill level was good.

"We had a short spell in the second half were we didn't run as hard as we could have, but apart from that I'm happy with the result.

"We went a bit soft for 10 minutes, but it is hard to concentrate for 80 minutes when you are running away with it like that. I don't mean to sound arrogant."

Hull coach Peter Gentle admitted there were no excuses for his side's poor display despite missing nine first-team players through injury.

Gentle said: "I can't doubt the effort that was there for everyone to see, but sometimes quality just wins out. When their 17 are playing to the best of their ability against the 17 we had out there, quality will always win out.

"It was disappointing the way we played. It is going to happen with a young side, but we are not making excuses, we didn't transfer how we've trained on to the playing field.

"We were not up to it today and that's disappointing."
