  2. Wigan Warriors beat rivals St Helens to go top of the Betfred Super League.Tries from Jake Bibby, Tommy Leuluai, Bevan French and Jackson Hastings.FT | St Helens 6-18 Wigan Warriors. Wigan Warriors overcame rivals St Helens to go top of the Betfred Super League at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday night. In one of the games of the season, Adrian Lam’s side recorded their first win over Saints in over two years with tries from Jake Bibby, Tommy Leuluai, Bevan French and Jackson Hastings. The first half began as a real exhibition Rugby League, with both sides hitting hard, completing high and dealing with any attacking skirmishes beyond halfway. It took until the half-hour mark for the first score of the game, going to the home side. Jonny Lomax was able to break the Wigan line and find Lachlan Coote to score. Lam’s men struck back just four minutes later through Jake Bibby. A fantastic grubber from Zak Hardaker down the right touchline eluded the whitewash and found the onrushing Bibby to score in the corner. The second-half began much the same as the first, with scintillating action from both teams, until Wigan added another try through Tommy Leuluai in the 54th. The half-back stepped inside his marker, skipped past a couple more defenders and ran the ball home from 15 metres. Wigan extended the lead in the 62nd through leading try scorer Bevan French. A wonderful short ball from Willie Isa released the full-back to run clear from 30 plus metres out to make the score. The Cherry and Whites put firther daylight between the scores in the 70th minute through Jackson Hastings. Wigan gained field position after Isa charged down a Saints kick. The resulting set found Hastings, who crossed the whitewash in the right corner.

  7. Tony Clubb looks ahead to Friday’s derby against St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium.The 33-year-old talks about his memories of playing against Saints and how he returned from injury to make his 150th Wigan last week.Clubb: “There is a lot at stake for both teams and has all the markings to be a good game.” Tony Clubb says the Wigan-Saints derby will still have the same ‘feel’ to it despite there being no fans to watch inside the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday night. The Warriors head to the Totally Wicked Stadium (K.O. 7:30pm) looking to overtake their rivals and move to top spot in the Betfred Super League table. Whilst admitting it will be different without spectators there, Clubb says the intensity will still be high between the two sides. He said: “These are the games you look forward to. It’s been the same since I got here, no matter what you do, you have to beat them. Whether crowds are there or not, it will still have that same feel to it, because the mentality from us will be the same. “There is a lot at stake for both teams and has all the markings to be a good game. Clubb says the players’ mentality will be no different for this derby than others. “For every player from Wigan it is one of the first games you look out for, and I know it’s been an up and down year, but we still get dead excited for it. The games are a joy to play in because it’s just two teams going at it.” It was not long after joining Wigan that the prop realised how the big the rivalry between the two clubs is. “We used to play Saints in friendly games when I first joined. At London it was more about getting to know the new players, but here we went into a meeting with Waney (Shaun Wane) and the first thing he said was, ‘I want to win this’. From there on, I know whenever we play them, even if it was the car park out the front, it is one we have to win to make the town and the people happy.” Clubb hopes to add the League Leaders’ Shield to his trophy haul. The 33-year-old has plenty of memories of the derby and is looking forward to adding to that in Friday’s clash. “I remember one game when we turned them over quite convincingly. There is also the Grand Final against them too, and even though we lost, the atmosphere was class. I’ve got lots of memories since I’ve been here, and I expect nothing less on Friday. “Every game is a must win now because it can turn so quick. If we can go top then it is in our hands. With the run in we’ve got, I feel we can beat the teams we have. “As players we generally don’t worry about the point percentage because if you’re winning games then you are doing alright. It gives us more incentive and the League Leaders’ Shield is a trophy I have never won, so it would be nice to add to the collection.” Clubb made his return from injury in the victory over Salford. Clubb made his 150th Cherry and White appearance last week as he came off the bench to help his side beat Salford Red Devils. “To play 150 games for such a great club is special. It was nice to have my shirt presented to me by Lockers (Sean O’Loughlin) and I was also shown a short video of myself during my time at Wigan.” The forward believes the Warriors’ display against the Red Devils places his team in a good position heading into the derby on Friday evening. “It was something we have been trying to get this season. We didn’t know how Salford would turn up, but we wanted a ruthless attitude from the start, which set the tone. For the 80 minutes we were really good and that puts us in good stead for what will come this week.” The post Clubb: A lot at stake appeared first on Wigan Warriors Blog. View the full article
  8. Oliver Gildart looks ahead to Friday’s derby clash with St Helens.Gildart: “The circumstance leading into these last few weeks means it’s now set up fo a tasty game.”St Helens vs Wigan Warriors, Friday 30th November, Totally Wicked Stadium, K.O. 7:45pm. Oliver Gildart is expecting a game of the high quality when Wigan do battle with rivals St Helens this Friday (K.O. 7:45pm). The Cherry and Whites head away to the Totally Wicked Stadium for a mouthwatering clash of first versus second in the Betfred Super League table. Speaking to Wigan TV ahead of the game, the 24 year-old explained how the Warriors are preparing for a top Saints side, despite coming off a defeat to Salford. “We train for the best Saints team always and it’s set up to be a great game. Gildart scored a spectacular try last time Wigan beat Saints at the Totally Wicked Stadium in 2018. “It’s always going to be very intense, but the circumstance leading into these last few weeks means it’s now set up fo a tasty game.” The England and Great Britain International’s season has, up until now, been mostly curtailed by his recovery from a shoulder injury. However, with four tries in his last three games, Gildart looks to be building some form at the business end of the season. On his performances so far, he said: “I’m still getting confidence back. I don’t think I’m anywhere near my full potential yet, but I need to keep ticking these games off and getting my confidence back.” Watch the full interview on Wigan TV by clicking HERE.

We want to play in the big games and it’s our arch-rivals.”St Helens vs Wigan Warriors, Friday 30th October, Totally Wicked Stadium, K.O. 7:45pm.

  14. Tommy Leuluai reflects on Wigan’s 58-12 victory over Salford.The half-back talks about remaining consistent, having the right attitude and looks ahead to Friday’s game against St Helens.Leuluai: “There have been games where we have got the lead and then dropped the intensity, but we kept it right for the whole 80.” Tommy Leuluai says Wigan Warriors need to continue the type of display they produced against Salford Red Devils throughout the rest of the 2020 season. Adrian Lam’s side recorded an impressive 58-12 victory over the Red Devils at the Totally Wicked Stadium to tighten their grip in the top four. Despite the win, Leuluai is remaining grounded and cites it is a performance that they need to repeat. He said: “We have to take into account that they (Salford) rested a few so we can’t get too carried away, but it was the performance that we have been searching for. I am pleased we put in that performance, but we’ve done it before where we have gone on a run and then had a little hiccup, so it is about continuing this for a long period. Leuluai in action against Salford on Friday night. “It was our most consistent performance. There have been games where we have got the lead and then dropped the intensity, but we kept it right for the whole 80.” The 35-year-old knows that if the Warriors build on that game then they will enjoy a strong end to the season. “We are looking at ourselves, trying to play intense rugby for a full game because we haven’t really done it. We are quite confident that if we can put in that consistent performance then we will be there and there abouts.” Adding comments about Friday’s comprehensive triumph, Leuluai was pleased with the display of the entire team. “Everyone played their part and did their bit. Brad Singleton was good and Clubby (Tony Clubb) was great off the bench – it was a great team performance.” Leuluai has played 15 games for Wigan in 2020. One of the stand-out players was Bevan French, who went over for a hat-trick, as well as two assists. Leuluai admits from day one he knew that the full-back would be an exciting addition to the squad. “The first couple of times I saw him in training last year I knew he was a special player. He’s someone who can do things that not many others can do. Even playing alongside him, it’s great to watch – we are lucky to have him with the way he is playing.” Wigan take on St Helens next Friday, in a game where Leuluai believes they will need to be at their best again. “It’s good to know we can do it at a high intensity. It will be much harder next week, with more pressure. They are a good team and we haven’t really performed against them for a long time, so we are looking to change that.” The post Leuluai: Most consistent performance appeared first on Wigan Warriors Blog.

  15. Liam Farrell reflects on Wigan’s 58-12 victory over Salford Red Devils.The 30-year-old talks about his two tries, the brilliance of Bevan French and attacking quality in the squad.Farrell: “The score shows that we played for 80 minutes, which is the mentality we want for rest of the season.” Liam Farrell says Wigan’s 58-12 victory over Salford showed the strength of his team’s mentality. Adrian Lam’s side put in one of their stand-out performances of the season, as they looked to solidify their place in the Betfred Super League top four. Farrell was pleased with how the Warriors picked up from where they left off against Warrington two weeks ago. He said: “We wanted to carry on the mentality from the Warrington performance, and I think we pretty much did that. We started well and it just continued throughout the entire game. The score shows that we played for 80 minutes, which is the mentality we want for rest of the season.” Farrell was happy with how his side continued the mentality from their previous game. The second-row went over twice in the victory – seeing him move into double figures ten tries in 17 games in 2020 so far. “Quite a few people got over, so I was fortunate enough to bag another two. I think I’m living off the joy of having a really good half-back in Jackson (Hastings). We have a lot of attacking threats, which is pleasing to have.” Into double figures for the season! 10 tries in 17 games in 2020 for Faz! #WWRL #SLWigSal pic.twitter.com/WsRF5LgYLY — Wigan Warriors (@WiganWarriorsRL) October 23, 2020 Following Bevan French’s hat-trick, Farrell had a lot of praise for his teammate and ranks him as one of the best players he’s played with. “A lot of teams are worried about Bevan (French), and I think you can see why. He was unbelievable, you don’t know what he is going to do. I’ve never played with a player like him, just through pure speed, if you give him open space then you’ve got no chance.” Farrell also cited the importance of Sam Powell, with the hooker also grabbing a brace on Friday night. “He’s going really well. Teams must know what he is doing, but no one can seem to stop him at the minute. He’s a great asset to us and hopefully he can continue that.” Farrell going over for his first of two tries on Friday night. After Salford’s Coral Challenge Cup final defeat at Wembley last weekend, Farrell knew it would be something that could take its toll on the opposition. “We spoke about how hard it is to back up a Challenge Cup final, with both the physical and emotional energy, so we knew it would be tough for them with the way we showed up. I think Salford caught us at the wrong time.” With St Helens up next for Wigan, the forward shared his excitement for the derby and believes it is poised to be a great game. “It’ll be a tough one, derby games are always the same, it will be whoever does the simple stuff the best. I’ve played in a lot of them and both teams are travelling well, so it should make for a really good game. I am really looking forward to it.” The post Farrell: 80 minute performance appeared first on Wigan Warriors Blog. View the full article
