Warriors win frustrates Wane
Shaun Wane says he wasn't overly happy with Wigan's performance against Castleford, despite winning the match 40-16 on Friday night.
The Warriors moved five points clear at the top of Super League with what, on paper, looked like a comfortable win over a Tigers outfit which is currently beset by injuries. Tongan prop Epalahame Lauaki crashed over with two early tries, while winger Iain Thornley scored once as Wigan made a lightning fast start before Rhys Williams responded for Castleford. Liam Farrell went in for the league leaders before half-time but they were on the back foot straight after the interval when Olly Holmes scored for the Tigers. While Wigan did manage to reassert their dominance thanks to two tries from Sam Tomkins and one each for George Carmont and Josh Charnley Wane was left upset by the way his Warriors team lost their concentration for periods in the match. "I don't think scoring the tries so easily helped our cause," Wane said. "It's happened a few times this year so it's our mental approach," "I thought we were scratchy. They had a few players out and a few came in wanting to prove a point to Ian Millward. In parts we looked good, in other parts we didn't look so good."
