Liam Marshall seals Challenge Cup glory for Wigan with his 77th-minute try against Huddersfield

Liam Marshall’s try three minutes from time saw Wigan Warriors claim the Betfred Challenge Cup for the 20th time with a 16-14 win over Huddersfield.

Tries from Ricky Leutele and Chris McQueen, plus a penalty from Tui Lolohea helped the Giants into a 10-6 lead at half-time after Harry Smith’s converted score had briefly got the Warriors back on level terms.

But the irrepressible Jai Field put Wigan into the lead for the first time three minutes after the restart and although Huddersfield did retake the lead, there was no denying Matt Peet’s side as Marshall chased down a kick from Harry Smith to finish in the corner for the game-clinching try.

Ian Watson’s team were also left to rue four out of five missed kicks at goal from Lolohea and although second-row McQueen claimed the Lance Todd Trophy – the second year in a row the player of the match had finished on the losing team – it was scant consolation as the Giants missed out on lifting the Challenge Cup for the first time since 1953.
