Maguire Pleased With Show

Wigan Warriors made it eight wins in a row on Monday night in all competitions following their 40-6 win over Hull KR.

The highlights were hat-tricks for both Sam Tomkins and Pat Richards as well as the defensive effort in the first half as the Warriors led 12-0, Rovers had four sets close to the Wigan line but held strong and when the visitors did score, Wigan scored again on the stroke of half time. Head Coach Michael Maguire was pleased with the performance of his side,

"The whole team needs the credit because of the hard work they had to fight through in that first half," he said.

"They were coming at us and there was a period where we had to defend our line for four or five sets. To be able to dig ourselves out of that and put ourselves back in the game, that was probably the most pleasing factor.

"They challenged us, we withstood it, and that allowed us to score some points at the back end. The quality of some of the tries was pleasing too."
