Chris Tuson scores a last-minute try to give Wigan Warriors a 28-22 win over Castleford Tigers.

Wigan Warriors survived a strong second-half performance from Castleford Tigers to register a 28-22 win in the Super League this afternoon.

First-half tries from Ben Flower, Pat Richards and Chris Tuson gave the visitors a 16-4 lead at the interval, Jake Webster adding the points for Tigers just before the break.

Michael McIlorum extended Wigan's advantage shortly after the re-start, while a try from Jamie Ellis started a fightback from the hosts.

Castleford dominated for much of the second period, allowing Justin Carney to score twice and level the scores with seven minutes remaining.

However, a second try from Tuson rescued the win for Warriors in the final minute of the game.
