Adrian Lam criticises his players’ attitudes after defeat at Castleford

Wigan coach Adrian Lam was disappointed with his side’s attitude in their loss at Castleford.

The Warriors went down to a 16-12 defeat against the Tigers at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Friday night.

Lam said: “It was really frustrating, just a penalty-a-thon. There were 10 penalties against and no flow in the game.

“We were poor with a lot of things, our attitude wasn’t right, I’m not impressed at all.

“Four of the penalties were in front of the posts and you can’t do that when you come to Cas.

“We’ve only got ourselves to blame because our execution on the back of that was not great, we were not Wigan tonight, a lot of silly basic errors.

“We’ve got a fair bit of work to do. We looked off the pace from the start, they tackled harder and ran harder than us.

“We got a little bit ahead of ourselves after last week. It’s an opportunity to re-think and move forward again.”

  1. At last a coach who blames the PLAYERS.
    One day even fans will realise that their “perfect players” are not and cost their team.
    The ONLY people who can change this are the PLAYERS as usual.
