Matt Peet praised his side’s defensive efforts as Wigan Warriors beat London Broncos 36-0 at The Brick Community Stadium.

Jack Farrimond and Jake Wardle each scored twice as the Warriors sealed a comfortable two points heading into the international break.

On the result, Peet said: “A decent night’s work with some highlights for us. Our scramble defence was good which it had to be as London broke us a few times but our commitment remained relatively good. We got some minutes into players as well so overall it was a pleasing two points.”

Farrimond scored twice on his home debut, and on the teenager’s performance, Peet said: “I’m made up for him. As soon as he started the game you could he see he was in the mood with the way he ran the ball and the way he defended. He was very confident in his goal kicking and he saved that try at the end which is the play the lads just mentioned then in the dressing room.”

Peet added: “It’s a testament to Jack’s dedication and his family who support him very well. Shane Eccles has done a great job over the last few years and more recently John Duffy who deserves all the credit tonight. I know how it feels when you bring a player through and rightfully so he will be buzzing. It’s really positive for the Club.”

The Warriors celebrated our Armed Forces pre-match as well as a fan walk which saw #ALL4 trophies paraded from Robin Park Arena to The Brick Community Stadium.

On the pre-match activities, Peet said: “The fan walk was excellent as was the energy and buzz around Robin Park which the Club continue to grow and push. Credit to all our fans as well who come from all the different Clubs in Cumbria and to our Community staff as well who grow our presence in the area. We have some very passionate set of fans who travel down and their support doesn’t go unnoticed.”

On the international break, Peet said: “All of us as players and staff will take some time off and rest. It’s important as it’s been an intense year so far in which the lads have delivered. Now we’ve got the chance to let the lads take time off to refresh which is important as well for their families. When the lads come back in it will be all systems go in what will be another intense period right the way through to October.”
