Honest Matt Peet reveals how he felt after Leeds defeat

Wigan Warriors

Despite trailing 14-0 early in the game against Wigan Warriors and being a man down at halftime, Leeds Rhinos stunned the Warriors to claim a 40-18 win away.

After the game Wigan boss Matt Peet was naturally unhappy as he stated it was the worst performance he had seen from his side:

“It is an 80 minute game and we failed to commit to it for the full 80 minutes. That is the worst 40 minutes since I’ve been here and the first time I feel the way I do right now.

“Generally when we have lost it has been a performance of commitment but that wasn’t the case today.”

Asked what he was feeling, Peet was very honest:

“I am embarrassed. I know how hard the lads work and how we started the game but we were all below par in the second half.”

He went on to say:

“It was completely unacceptable in the second half. We will all be equally embarrassed at that.

“It was way below par from all of us.

“I thought in the first half we did some decent things but we always knew that Leeds were always capable of doing something the way they play and the commitment they’ve got and it turned pretty ugly.

“I wasn’t shocked by Leeds and their quality, I was shocked by our mentality. We started chasing points and it went from bad to worse.

“I commend Leeds, some of their tries was outstanding skill. We knew that they were capable of that though and we didn’t do enough to stop them.

“I do think when you start to chase points, you give them more of a chance. They scored a couple of tries at the end where we serve up some soft ball but I think credit to them.”
