Adrian Lam’s praise for Wigan’s defence and Leigh fans

Wigan coach Adrian Lam has praised his side’s defence after they fought back to win at Leigh.

Down 10-0 early in the game, the Warriors responded to win 30-16 and maintain their perfect start to the season.

Wigan did not concede a point in the second half as they rebounded from being knocked out of the Challenge Cup by Hull FC.

Lam said: “Physically yeah, defensively we responded really well.

“I thought the way we started was probably a little bit of a hangover from the Challenge Cup. It was a 10-day turnaround, there were a lot of errors and that part was of concern.

“But in the second half we held them to nil which is back to where we want to be.”

The match was played in front of fans for the first time since mid-March last year.

Lam admitted the atmosphere at the Leigh Sports Village was impressive and believes it will be an asset for the Centurions.

Lam added: “Whoever comes here, any Super League team for the rest of the year, it’s going to be a real tough battle for them because the crowd gets right behind them.

“It sounded like it was full at times. I can imagine them getting on a roll and it being a really tough day for teams.

“I’m glad we’ve come here and got the two points.”
