Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane has said that talk of revenge in the Hull KR camp ahead of their Challenge Cup tie on Friday has “upset” his squad.
Wigan won 60-0 at the DW Stadium in the league two weeks ago, but Robins players have spoken of a much improved performance to try and ensure fans the same won’t happen again at Leigh Sports Village on Friday night.
And that has annoyed Wane, who says his players have been upset by the comments – and they are determined to inflict the same result on KR.
“Some of the comments made have upset our players and we’re going into the game with a fire in our bellies,” Wane told the Wigan Today website.
“Since that loss, they’re talking the talk about how it’s going to be a different game – and now it’s up to us to make it the same game.”
