Jamie Jones-Buchanan’s Wigan Warriors warning

Last night Wigan Warriors came up short against Catalans Dragons making it two defeats in the opening four rounds.

This has led to questions over their title credentials, and Phil Clarke highlighted what he thinks is their biggest weakness.

He said on Sky Sports: “They’re biggest weakness, and it was clear against Leeds in the play-offs and again here tonight, is there inability to score when close to the opponents line.

“I know that is something they are working on but they will be disappointed with the amount of chances they had that they didn’t score score from.

“If they are going to get to the Grand Final that needs to change.”

However, Jamie Jones-Buchanan warned that it would silly to write the Warriors off at this stage.

He said: “That would be daft to write them off. They are a good team, there is no doubt about that and they will come back firing.

“There is a lot of eggs in that basket so if you can deal with them especially in weather like this, then you have a good chance of beating them.

“Catalans have perhaps given you the formula for beating Wigan but Wigan are a good side.”

The Warriors lost 18-10 to the French side who scored tries through Arthur Romano and Manu Ma’u who bagged himself a brace of tries.
