Gabe Hamlin says he’s sure Wigan will get out of this rut and back to winning ways soon.
The Australian prop came into the side and played off the bench in the defeat to Wakefield.
Speaking after the game, he said: “It seems like this last few weeks we’ve hit a rut and we really need to get out of it.
“It’s hard. Things didn’t go our way but part of that is in our control, little dropped balls and giving them the ball in good field position, we can’t afford to do it. That said, I’m sure we can get out of this soon.”
The former South Sydney junior crashed over for his first try for Wigan in the first half and was happy to do so in front of two special guests.
“It’s not the best time to get my first one (with the defeat) – but it was a good experience.
“My mum and dad are here in the UK at the moment so it was a good feeling to get that try in front of them.
“This was the only game they were going to be able to see me play in. They really liked the atmosphere. It’s really different here to Sydney crowds!
“It was good to score but it’s always better to score when you win”
Having featured on dual-reg for Swinton last week, Hamlin hopes to get some more regular rugby now.
“It’s hard not being able to play week to week. You can’t get that confidence and all of the little details right.
“I played at Swinton last week and then here this week, if I can get some regular rugby then I’m only going to get better. My confidence will improve, my defence will get tighter and hopefully I’ve put myself in with a shot of playing against Hull FC next week.”
