Matt Peet has say on bizarre moment when official stopped certain Wigan Warriors try by accident

It took a while for the usually free scoring Wigan Warriors to get into gear against Castleford Tigers on Friday.

However, part of this was down to Tom Grant who accidentally got in the way of Liam Marshall as he tore through the centre of the pitch.

In the end it didn’t matter that he stopped a certain try as Marshall went on to score a hat trick making it eight in three games to start the season.

Speaking after the game, coach Matt Peet oddly said he expected moments like this:

“Those are the sort of moments we were expecting. Balls on the pitch, questionable decisions and referees getting under their feet. But it’s all about how we reacted, I thought today was first class.”

He was very pleased with his side’s defence speaking after the game about it: “Very pleasing, different kind of win to last week. Credit to the players that managed to weather that early storm. Maximum credit to the players and Sean O’Loughlin our defensive coach.

“When you have to defend your own line at the start it sort seals you for the rest of the game. I think it put us in a good position.”

He then gave his verdict on their clash against Catalans Dragons:

“It’s going to be a similar team, it’s going to be hard to break into that. Might be a case of rotation and it’s certainly going to be a challenging game.”
