Super League: Wigan’s Jai Field 18/1 with William Hill to score a hat-trick against Huddersfield


Whisper it softly, but Wigan Warriors look capable of emerging as a genuine force this season.

Arguably the biggest and most famous club in British rugby league largely flattered to deceive in the past three seasons under Adrian Lam.

Under rookie head coach Matty Peet, though, the cherry and whites have won two from two and scored 11 tries in the process.

There has been an energy and a conviction to their play and they should be too strong for Huddersfield Giants on Thursday night.

A hat-trick and try-saver ?

Aussie speedster has scored four tries in opening wins against Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos, and is a very tempting 9/1 with Betfred.

Field is one of the fastest players in the competition and the way he reduced the Leeds defence to so much rubble last week was a sight to behold.

You can get a tempting 18/1 with William Hill for in-form Field to bag another treble against Huddersfield.

A safer bet is 1/1 with bet365 for Field to be an any-time try-scorer.

Field is a short price to be Super League’s top try-scorer this season but Salford’s prolific winger Ken Sio is worth a punt on in this regard.

Sio has already notched five times this season and was the competition’s leading marksmen last term.

Back him to repeat the feat in 2022 at odds of 7/1 with Betfred.
