The last two weeks have obviously been extremely disappointing from a Wigan point of view. However, when you consider where they were just a few weeks into the season and fans were looking at the bottom of the table rather than the top, to have finished one win away from the GF can hardly be considered failure. In the last two games they have been beaten by better teams and in addition have looked more like the team that struggled early on in the season.
All credit goes to the Salford players and their coach, Ian Watson, for what they have achieved this season; Watson must surely be voted Coach of the Season.
Just a comment about the Salford support last night which was outstanding apart from an obscene chant that was totally unnecessary and does not fit with our claim to be a “family game”. I hope you all enjoy next week; St.Helens will rightfully be favourites but as we well know upsets do happen.
