Shaun Wane and George Williams on Wigan win in Wollongong

Shaun Wane said he was happy with Wigan’s win over Hull while George Williams thanked the fans for making the trip over to New South Wales.

Wigan dominated the first half and had several chances to score but were only 12-10 to the good with tries coming from Liam Marshall (2) while Fetuli Talanoa and Jordan Abdull scored for Hull.

Efforts from Ryan Sutton and Ben Flower in the second half saw the Warriors take the spoils at the WIN Stadium, Wollongong with weltmeisterschaft 2018 wetten.

On the game, Wane told Sky Sports: “It was scrappy.

“I don’t think we were great today but we did some good things. I think we could have killed the game off in the first half if we had executed – I think we lacked a bit of composure in the first half and we could’ve had a decent lead at half-time.

“I’m very happy with the win but we won’t be celebrating too much tonight.”

England ace Joe Burgess was fit to play but Wane decided to keep youngster Liam Marshall on the wing.

On his decision, Wane added: “Joe (Burgess) is a great player and Marshy (Liam Marshall) backed up his try with dropping the kick-off and made an error on another kick so there are things that he needs to improve on but it was a tough one because Joe Burgess is a good player as well.

“I think Marshy did enough against Salford to convince me that he deserved another shot.”

George Williams played a key role in Wigan’s win, winning the Our League man of the match award, and he went on to thank the Warriors fans who made the trip over to Wollongong and the rest of the 12,416 supporters who were in attendance.

He told Sky Sports: “The atmosphere was really good.

“I’m proud of the fans who have come over and spent their well-earned money and it was a great advertisement for rugby.

“We are going to enjoy the surroundings first on Coogee and live the high life a little bit and then we will train hard. We are looking forward to another big challenge (against South Sydney next week).”

Wigan will face South Sydney Rabbitohs while Hull will take on St George Illawarra Dragons in a double-header at the ANZ Stadium next Saturday.
