Jamie Jones-Buchanan says this Super League team “has work to do”

Last night Wigan Warriors showed brilliant character to fight back from 16-8 down against Salford Red Devils to pick up a fourth win of the season and to keep hold of their third place in the Super League table.

It was a lovely solo try from Bevan French got Wigan back in the game after moving to fullback before a lovely wide passing play found Jai Field, now in the halves, who fed the ball wide to Toby King to score to make it 20-16.

It was a game that highlighted some of the strengths in this Wigan side such as their ability to stick in a game when not at their best as well as their defensive ability.

Moreover, it of course highlighted the individual brilliance of the likes of Jai Field and Bevan French who can win games by themselves.

However, for Jamie Jones-Buchanan it highlighted the work that Wigan have to do to get back up to the level of their rivals such as Warrington Wolves who are six from six to start the season as well as World Champions St Helens.

He said: “I think they have a lot of work to do. They will have to play other teams, Warrington, St Helens coming up in the next few weeks and they will have to throw a little more at them.

“But for now they will be happy with the two points.”

That said, nothing is won in March which is a philosophy that favours Wigan and fellow title rivals Huddersfield Giants.

Both have shown signs that they will compete in 2023 without showing their cards too early.
