Wigan star taking nothing for granted
Thomas Leuluai believes Wigan need to make a make a number of improvements if they are to reach October's Grand Final.
The Warriors wrapped up the League Leaders Shield on Sunday thanks to a 42-36 win at Hull KR, a victory that proved their mental strength as they battled back from 26-0.
The game marked Leuluai's first appearance since breaking his leg in June and having come through unscathed, the Kiwi now looks set to play a major role in his side's bid for a place at Old Trafford on October 6.
The 27-year-old admits that the manner of their win at Craven Park pleased his side but has warned his team-mates that they still have plenty to work on going into the play-offs.
"It's always a sign of a good team when you don't play well an win, but we can't do the things we did on Sunday and expect to win the competition," he said. "There were silly errors, knock-ons and penalties. We can't do that again."
"People say it can help to get a dodgy performance out of the way before the play-offs, but I've never believed in that. I think you should go out to play well every week - you don't purposely want to play bad so you don't play badly in the play-offs," he added.
