Two tries from Josh Charnley help Wigan Warriors return to the top of the Super League table with a 21-16 win over Hull Kingston Rovers.

Wigan Warriors have returned to the top of the Super League table with a narrow win over Hull Kingston Rovers.

Despite an early try from Josh Charnley, it was the visitors who took an early lead, with Greg Eden and Michael Dobson finding the try line during a strong spell of possession.

Darrell Goulding managed to level for the hosts in the final seconds of the first half, before Charnley restored their advantage with his second of the match after the break.

Anthony Gelling looked to seal the result for the home side with their fourth try of the game, while Matty Smith added a drop goal inside the last five minutes.

A late effort from Evarn Tuimavave gave the visitors some late hope, reducing Wigan's lead to five points with three minutes until full time, but KR were unable to rally again to add to their score further.

The result moves the Warriors above Huddersfield Giants in the Super League table, while Hull KR remain sixth.
