Regan Grace and Jack Welsby doubled up as St Helens saw off a Wigan Warriors side containing six debutants in Tuesday’s Super League derby clash.

Alex Walmsley’s eighth try of the season put St Helens ahead, with quickfire scores from wingers Welsby and Grace while Sam Halsall was in the sin-bin putting the reigning champions into an 18-0 lead at half time.

Wigan’s youthful side, which had an average age of just 22-and-a-half, continued to plug away valiantly after the break, but further scores from Morgan Knowles, James Bentley, Welsby and Grace, plus Lachlan Coote kicking seven out of seven conversion attempts, sealed a convincing win.
