Warriors get the job done

Wigan boss Shaun Wane said it was “job done” after Wigan eased into the last eight of the Challenge Cup with a 42-12 success at Swinton on Sunday.

Joe Burgess topped the scoring for the Warriors with a couple of tries to seal a quarter-final spot against Warrington and leave Wane satisfied with the afternoon’s work.

“I’m very happy with that – it was a bit disruptive with losing George (Williams) in the build-up,” said Wane.

“It’s a job done – we wanted to be in the next round and we did that. We did some good things – our defence was good and they threw a lot at us.

“It’s been a good day. If you look at the age of the team it’s a very young team, we have got two back-rowers in the halves so our attack was not going to be great. We just found a way to win.

“Swinton a good team and are well coached. They have a lot of talented players – some of who we know – and score a lot of points in their own competition. So to keep them down to two tries is pleasing.”
