Right direction: Sarginson

  • Dan Sarginson reflects on Wigan Warriors’ 19-18 victory over Hull KR at KCOM Craven Park.

  • The 26-year-old describes Sam Powell’s winning drop goal as ‘unbelievable.’

  • Sarginson: “It was a step in the right direction.”

Dan Sarginson has described Sam Powell’s match-winning drop goal against Hull KR on Sunday as ‘unbelievable’.

The match was decided in the 78th- minute when Powell kicked a stunning 40-metre drop goal to give Wigan a 19-18 victory.

Sarginson said: “It was amazing. I have never seen Sam hit one in training so to see him get one from 40 metres is pretty unbelievable, fair play to him.”

Sarginson is congratulated by Powell after scoring one of Wigan’s tries.

Despite the win, Sarginson stated his side still have a lot to work on.

The 26-year-old admitted: “Hull KR were pretty good and we made it pretty tough as we weren’t overly convincing, so we need to work on that and continue to get those wins going into the backend of the season.

“We still have things to work on, but the result was a step in the right direction.”

Following an injury to Zak Hardaker, Sarginson moved from his regular position in centre to play as full-back in the second half.

“I was a bit rusty because I haven’t played there for a while, but we were on the front foot in the game so it made things easier.”

Heading into Friday’s game against Leeds Rhinos, Sarginson is expecting a tough test.

“We know they’ll turn up, so it is crucial that we have a good week in training to come away with a convincing win.

“We are both two big teams at the bottom and two crucial points will be at stake.”
