Coach positive about Easter weekend

Coaches complaining has become as much of an Easter tradition as the games themselves.

But not for Wigan boss Shaun Wane, who explained after their 16-10 win at Wakefield, that he enjoys the Easter period.

He told the club’s official website: “The Easter period is tough for the players and for the staff, we don’t get much sleep as staff but I enjoy it.

“I like the tradition of it.

“We’re careful with the players and we’ll give them a few days off now and have a session on Thursday. 

“There’s things we need to fix but we don’t have much time this week.”

A contributing factor to Wane’s happiness may be that his side won both their games, the win at Trinity backing up a victory tussle over St Helens on Friday.

This season, Super League will have two double-header weekends, with another pencilled in for the last weekend in May.

Wigan, who have struggled with injuries all season, will at least to have some bodies back by then.

Wane revealed that Willie Isa and Lewis Tierney are likely to return from injury against Catalans next week.
