Not much you can say about this. Wakefield didn't really look like they had much to give. Wigan played like they were really keen to put the derby defeat behind them. Hard to really judge how much of this was Wigan playing well and how much was Wakefield playing poorly.

Positives for Wigan were the performances of our front rowers. Singleton and Byrne were outstanding and Ellis played big minutes and got through plenty of work. Also good to see a bit more from our outside backs. Field was a threat as always, French was quality before being taken off at half time and Abbas Miski has almost certainly played well enough to keep his place on the wing. Sam Halsall also had a good game which generates some competition for places and hopefully puts Bibby under pressure as he's the only player who didn't really have a good game for Wigan today.

Harry Smith was also impressive and we need him to find some form is Leuluai is going to be out long term.

Wakefield really don't seem to have the depth to cope with missing some of their bigger names. Their pack looked awful, although Lino and a couple of their backs threatened on rare occasions.

Not looking for excuses, but we were 12 1st/2nd choice players missing and we were digging deeply into the squad.

Previously, we had got away with it as the pack was not too heavily affected, barring Dave Fifita. Today the pack was very scant, particularly on the bench.

Added to that Minns (first game back) went off with a head knock after scoring his try on 10 minutes which needed a rejig and then the straw that broke the camel's back was probably the sin-binning of Tanginoa which opened the floodgates. 

We were never really going to win the game with the players available, but the one-sided scoreline was probably a reflection more bad luck/discipline. 

I'm hoping this was a one-off squad and some first choice players will be fit/refreshed and available for Hull KR next week.

I thought the announced Wakefield team was in trouble, very high shirt numbers and names that are not too familiar.

Wakefield scored first after forcing goal line drop outs, 6 agains and penalties. French then scored a 60 yarder and Wigan were off. 24-4 at half time then 48-4 thirteen minutes into the 2nd half. Squad depth is massive and Wakefield's isn't there.

Looks like Bevan's getting back into the swing of things. I'd say about 70% full pace.
