It was another try-scoring affair for Marshall, expertly picking up the ball before it rolled into touch to score in the corner, before backing it up with another try as Wigan’s attack pummelled the Salford defence.

That takes him onto 10 tries for the season and the 123 metres he made with it will only help Wigan as they battle for top spot in Super League.
