The half back stated how proud he was of his side as he spoke to Wigan TV to share his thoughts.

“I didn’t care how we won”, Hastings said. “We really wanted to win – we play them twice in two weeks so getting the first win on the board is really good for our confidence. They are a really good team, and they fought all the way to the end. 

“I think the positive about this group and this club is that we always find a way to fight and we did that, and we came out on top – I’m really proud of the effort.
