Adrian Lam looks ahead to Sunday’s home tie vs Hull FC.
“We are wary of this Hull side’s capabilities” - Lam.
- Wigan face Hull FC in the Betfred Super League at the DW Stadium on Sunday 24th Feb, (K.O. 3pm).
Wigan Head Coach Adrian Lam is looking for a reaction from his side, following their defeat to the Sydney Roosters, when they take on Hull FC this Sunday at the DW Stadium (K.O 3pm).
Following the heightened emotions, atmosphere and ultimate disappointment from losing the World Club Challenge, Lam described how his first job this week was getting his players prepared to take on Hull FC.
“I said to them that we’ve got a lot of work to do, but it was also a positive looking back. Of course we could have done a few things differently, but what we didn’t leave in the tank was our desire and our attack.
“I thought we had a good crack with the ball and if we can execute it a little better we certainly could have won that game. Moving forward, this is a massive game for us. Hull are coming here desperate to get their first win in a long time and we don’t want it to be at our fortress.”
On this weekend’s opponents, Lam made it clear that his side is well aware of the quality Hull FC have.
“It wasn’t long ago that those players were successful for them. We are wary of the capabilities of that Hull side and if you disrespect them or don’t take them for what they’re worth I’m sure they will bite you.”

Earlier this week it was announced that Liam Farrell will miss up to four months following a pectoral tear he picked up during the World Club Challenge. With the experienced second-row missing, the Warriors Head Coach explained that there are plenty of names in the squad in contention to take his spot.
“He will be a massive loss to us but when one door closes another one opens. Isa will probably get a crack there and then next in line there is Liam Paisley. We could move Gabe Hamlin to back row and there are a few of the boys currently on loan, and there is also Jack Wells when he is fit and Ollie Partington.
“We’ve got 34-35 players who are great players and we’ve got to make good use of them.”
