Saints score two late tries to stun 12-man Wigan

2 weeks ago 21

St Helens narrowly edged a contentious low-scoring local derby as two late tries from Tommy Makinson and Konrad Hurrell stunned 12-man Wigan Warriors.

Mark Percival's penalty gave Saints a 2-0 half-time lead.

Wigan looked like winning it on 55 minutes when Bevan French scored a superb individual kick-and-chase try.

But Liam Byrne was red carded on 64 minutes for a high challenge on Percival - and Saints cashed in on their man advantage to cross twice.
