Hughes: The first two points are an afterthought

Warrington forward Jack Hughes is more concerned with a good performance than two points against Leigh next week.

The Wire slumped to a fourth successive Super League defeat on Thursday, losing 16-38 against Wigan at the Haliwell Jones Stadium.

“It’s not so much the win it’s just a good 80-minute performance,” he said.

“To complete and defend well would be massive against Leigh next week.”

Hughes admitted he was looking forward to seeing a number of key players, including Chris Hill, return for the Wire.

“When lads like Hilly are back it’ll be huge and it might be the boost we need,” he added.

“We’ll keep working hard every week and striving for that first win.”

Wigan ran in four tries before half-time on the way to victory but were helped by a poor start from the Wolves which is something that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later, according to Hughes.

“Our starts are hurting us at the minute,” he said.

“We need to get a good start under our belt and see what comes off the back of that.

“I’m sure when we come through this we’ll be good for it.”
