Wigan Warriors coach Adrian Lam admits his team made the 30-26 win over Salford Red Devils tougher than necessary.
Wigan looked comfortable to get the victory at the AJ Bell Stadium in the second half after a quintet of tries, two of which were scored by Joe Greenwood, while Zak Hardaker also crossed over.
However, late tries from George Griffin and Niall Evalds made the end of the game very tense although Wigan held on to take the victory.
The win, which was only their fourth of the season after 12 games, lifts them to ninth in the table, following the Easter double header of fixtures.
Lam says he was very happy with the way they showed the determination to win but admits the lack of experience made the end tense. “I was really pleased with the courage of the players and their attitude at the start of the start of the game,” Lam told the club’s website. “We had a tough game against St Helens two days ago and we needed to start well and we did.

The start put us in a position to win the game. “You’re always worried as a coach, only because we’ve got a lot of young players in there who haven’t had got experience. “We made it tough for ourselves in the second half, particularly when we had a lack on experience on the field.
We then had to get the experienced players back on to try and steady the ship.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
