Result: Dom Manfredi stars as Wigan demolish Castleford but miss out on Shield

Wigan Warriors demolish Castleford Tigers 47-12 with nine tries at the DW Stadium, but it is not enough to secure the League Leaders' Shield.

Wigan Warriors have demolished Castleford Tigers 47-12 with nine tries at the DW Stadium, but it was not enough to secure the League Leaders' Shield.

The home side went into the lead after just four minutes when winger Dom Manfredi found a gap to burst through from close range before touching down.

Wigan then increased their lead two minutes later as Matt Bowen ran the ball over for a try after a 30-yard solo run.

Castleford pulled a try back in the 26th minute with Luke Dorn blasting his way through the Warriors defence, and Luke Gale converting to reduce the visitors' deficit to four points.

The tables turned two minutes before the break when Junior Moors forced his way through the Wigan defensive live for the try, and Gale kicked the conversion to put Castleford 12-10 up at half time.

Wigan replied, though, and again went ahead through Manfredi's second try of the night by driving his way over the Tigers' line.

Castleford's Denny Solomona was shown a yellow card after 55 minutes, and Wigan took full advantage with Manfredi battering his way over the line for his hat-trick.

Manfredi scored his fourth try of the night two minutes later by finishing in the corner, but Bowen failed to convert as the Warriors went 24-12 up.

Wigan continued to punish their opponents as Oliver Gildart ran over with 12 minutes remaining, and George Williams widening the scoreline further to 37-12 as the clock ticked down.

The hosts were not quite finished, either, and went 41-12 up when Joe Burgess darted over the line from close range.

Larne Patrick concluded the scoring in the final minute of the game by diving over the try-line, but while Wigan finished convincing winners, the scoreline was not enough to secure the League Leaders' Shield after Leeds Rhinos picked up a late win against Huddersfield Giants.
