As Wigan Warriors lost their second game of the season last night in just four rounds, Matt Peet was left frustrated but as he spoke to Sky Sports he refused to blame the referee.
He said: “It was frustrating. We didn’t execute well enough.
“You can’t be surprised with the referee or the weather because you have to expect those things.”
Later he would go on to blame his side’s game management: “Disappointing result. Credit to them but I thought some of our game management was poor.”
That said he refused to question his side’s commitment:
“We didn’t get the result in the end but you could see the effort and the desire was there.”
He is looking forward to having a longer turnaround going into a big clash with Huddersfield Giants next week:
“You have some weeks where you get it right, some where it doesn’t go right. It’s not a bad thing we’ve got eight days until a tough game against Hudddersfield.”
He also said that his side put themselves into a position to win the game but let themselves down in the big turnover moments:
“I was pleased with the lads’ second half performance, although we didn’t manage to get the job done I think we managed to turn the momentum of the game and put ourselves in a position to win it.
“Some of those big turnover moments are crucial and handed momentum back to Catalans who were in the mood to stick on to it.”
