Farrell and Williams catch Winder’s eye

Wigan Warriors assistant coach John Winder admits that young half-back George Williams and experienced forward Liam Farrell caught the eye during Thursday night’s comeback win against Huddersfield.

Williams played an influential role as the Warriors overturned a 10-0 deficit to win 30-22, whilst Farrell’s try proved to be the spark for Wigan’s revival against their top four rivals.

And Winder heaped praise on both after the game, insisting Farrell in particular has been supremely consistent all season long.

“I think George showed some maturity in the game and came up with some big individual plays,” said Winder. “Liam Farrell was very good, he had some great touches and looked a class second-rower, his work-rate was outstanding.

“He’s one of those guys who is always consistent, week-in week-out he turns out and like tonight he looked really dangerous on that left edge. When he got an opportunity and some space he showed how good a player he is.”
