Burgess channels anger to rescue Wigan

Joe Burgess admitted he was angry with himself when Jack Hughes put Warrington in front against Wigan at Magic Weekend on Saturday.

Hughes’ 75th minute effort on Burgess’ edge looked to have handed Wolves the win, but a fired-up Burgess dusted himself down and crossed the line late on to secure a 24-24 draw.

“I was fuming with myself when Jack scored – I felt like I had to make up for it and hopefully I did that in getting the last try,” he told the club’s official website.

“Lockers (Sean O’Loughlin) put it on a sixpence for me and I was just glad to get it down.

“In the first-half it felt like the game was ours and there for the taking, but we were just dumb at times in the second-half. I think it was our effort that kept us in it.

“The disappointing part is that we were winning for most of the game and that is what Waney (Shaun Wane) is disappointed about, but a point is better than no points in the end.

“We’re still unbeaten in nine years at the Magic Weekend which is a record that we are proud of.”
