Both Could Have Won It

  • Shaun Wane on Wigan’s 19-19 draw with Huddersfield Giants

  • Warriors share the spoils after dramatic game

  • Both teams could have won it admits Wane

Shaun Wane said both teams could have won it and that a draw was a fair result after a pulsating 19-19 draw with Huddersfield Giants.

On the game:

“We weren’t good enough, there were too many penalties and too many errors.

“Danny Brough was good, his kicking game was great but we showed character to stay in there and could have possibly won it.

“They’re a good team though and they’re flying and very confident at the minute.

“Overall I thought a draw was a fair result.”

On any signs of fatigue after last week’s cup clash with Warrington:

“I think last week caught up with a few of players, the likes of Sam (Tomkins) and John (Bateman), they were tired today but overall I’m not happy.

“We had our chances to win but giving away penalties on play five, dropping the ball on play one, you’re just giving yourselves a lot of work to do.

“We looked tired and that was a tough game in testing conditions but at the end of the day, even when you’re fatigued you bend your back and don’t give penalties away so I’m not giving any excuses to the players and they don’t want any. We just need to be better and smarter.

On his side’s Super League hopes.

“I’ve no question at all about this group, the effort is always good.”

Wane confirmed that no players had picked up injuries from the game and that Tony Clubb and Anthony Gelling are expected to return next week with Taulima Tautai the week after.
