Wigan coach Shaun Wane praised the club's youth policy after their home-grown talent came to the fore in the 48-10 victory over Hull.

Goalkicking winger Josh Charnley became Super League's leading scorer with a 24-point haul, full-back Sam Tomkins touched down twice in a dazzling display and young half-back Sam Powell capped a fairytale debut with the last of the Warriors' nine tries. Hooker Michael McIlorum also got a deserved try.

"There were times when we could have attacked a bit better and our defence was a bit sloppy in the first half but overall I'm very happy with the performance," Wane said.

"We were without both our halves but credit must go to John Winder, our head of youth, because we had 14 there who have come through the ranks. That's what made the victory more special for me.

"It was really pleasing to see Sam Powell coming back from broken leg and playing the way he did. He's a really good kid and works hard at his game.

"We've some great kids in Wigan and he's a good example. It was really pleasing to see him score that try."

Hull were especially badly hit by the late withdrawals of Jordan Turner and Danny Houghton and they also lost England centre Kirk Yeaman with an ankle injury midway through the first half while forwards Jay Pitts and Liam Watts also failed to finish the game after sustaining collarbone and knee injuries respectively.

Tough night

"We started our last training session with 19 men and finished with 16," said Hull coach Peter Gentle. "We had guys playing tonight that shouldn't have played.

"It was a tough night, the guys were out on their feet. It was our third game in 12 days and it was probably one game too far.

"We had quite a bit of disruption but we didn't help our cause with our completion rate. All but one of their tries came off our errors or penalties and we've got to be better than that.

"They showed courage in bucket-loads - no one waved the white flag - but we need to tidy our execution up."
