Lam slams his own side for ‘sh*tfight’ as he promises to drop players

It was Adrian Lam’s birthday today, but he was far from happy with what his Wigan side dished up against Leeds at the DW Stadium.

The Warriors went down 14-0, with an attack that looks void of confidence and a team that seems to lack any kind of communication.

And, Lam can certainly understand fans’ concerns.

“I feel it worse than anyone else in the stadium – I’m looking out thinking that’s not how we train or what we do,” Lam said.

“I just don’t get it and I use the word cohesion a lot, but when you’ve got players that haven’t played big minutes, they get easily fatigued and worry about their own performances and injuries rather than the unity aspect.

“We’re doing it tough at the moment and only those between the four walls in the changing rooms can get us out of it.”

Lam believed his side should have gone into half-time ahead.

“It wasn’t a good night, we’re a little bit down in confidence in the whole group and I think it is reflected in how we’re playing at the moment.

“We had some opportunities in the first-half and we could have taken control of the game.

“But when we didn’t score first the pressure builds, and we then go into halftime 6-0 down it becomes a sh*tfight.”

Lam says he will have no problem in dropping some players for their performances – though Sam Powell will not return for Monday’s away clash at Castleford.

“We need to consider some people’s position in the team, some changes need to be made.

“There’s one thing picking players but you need to pick players that are playing well and that’s hard at the moment.”
