The teenage Wigan scrum-half, Luke Robinson, darted in for a hat-trick of tries as the Challenge Cup heavyweights cruised past an out-classed Limoux 80-20 into the sixth round.

The 19-year-old was at the heart of a fluent Wigan display, which silenced the noisy home support, while fellow youngster Chris Melling also contributed 10 goals and a try. Limoux took a shock 4-2 lead after seven minutes through the New Zealand A centre Boycie Nelson. But then the home side faded quickly as Wigan, who only flew into France two hours before the kick-off, showed no signs of fatigue.

Warrington cruised through to the last eight with a 44-10 victory over Oldham, which included nine tries.

The part-timers of Oldham battled throughout and earned a standing ovation from their fans at the end - in stark contrast to last week when they were booed off the pitch after a 54-10 defeat by Leigh.
