Wigan still have room for improvement, admits Shaun Wane

Wigan coach Shaun Wane claims the best is still yet to come from the Warriors following their fine win over Castleford.

Two tries from Oliver Gildart helped the Warriors pull off a comfortable 28-12 win over the Tigersat the DW Stadium on Friday night.

Wigan have won nine out of 11 games so far this season. They are currently in second place in the Betfred Super League table, just two points behind league leaders St Helens and with a game in hand.

And despite Wigan’s fine start to the season, Wane still thinks there are plenty of improvements to be made.

He said: “I think there are loads of improvement in us and I would say that if we had 11 wins out of 11 games.

“I’m never really happy with things because I always want to look at ways to improve and I can see a lot of areas where we need to improve, there’s no question about that.

“We are doing things well in patches which is getting us the wins. Castleford are a very good team and not many teams will keep them to nil for 40 minutes, so that is something to be very proud of.

“I don’t want to sound arrogant in any way, but I genuinely see loads of improvement in us and we can get miles better.”

Castleford had defeated Wigan in their previous four meetings prior to Friday night, and Wane was glad to get that monkey off their backs.

He added: “Castleford are a class team so to keep them to no points in the second was great from us.

“We’ve beaten two very good teams in the last two weeks (Leeds & Castleford) and I’m very happy with where we’re at. I still there are loads of improvement in us and Daryl (Powell) will probably say the same.

“They have beaten us in the last four games and they have been by far the better team in them four games, there’s no doubt about that. They ended our season last year, so it was a big victory against a very good team, so I’m happy.”

Next up for Wigan is a trip to the Halton Stadium on Friday as they face Widnes Vikings, 8pm kick-off.
