Matt Peet speaks honestly on Bevan French future following incredible Wigan Warriors performance in thrashing of Wakefield Trinity

Wigan Warriors ran out 46-22 winners over Wakefield Trinity this afternoon at Belle Vue.

The Warriors always looked in control and never looked like relenting their lead after going in at the break 28-12.

Trinity’s problems were compounded with another three Wigan tries in the second-half as the Warriors inflicted another big defeat on the West Yorkshire side.

For Wigan boss Matt Peet, he praised his side’s ‘professional’ win despite conceding 22 points.

“It was certainly a good result, professional at the start – there were times where we have to come to Wakefield and struggled so to get two points is pleasing,” Peet said.

“You don’t like to see points shipped but we understand why that happened.

“Wakefield, when they get opportunities, they are vey clinical and they have got a lot of talent but they showed their capabilities.

“We have been on the other end of a lot of results in the years.”

Peet was also asked about the future of star Bevan French, who enjoyed yet another brilliant display.

“It’s good to have a variety of threats and Bevan is one of them. He’s a player you love to watch.

“I actually think Bevan is the most dangerous when you think there is nothing there for him, so when everyone stops and waits that’s when he gets in.

“He’s a special player, he took some towering kicks today and he’s great to work with. Sometimes when the game is nip and tuck and when Wakefield had a bit of joy, sometimes it’s down to those little bits that Bevan provides.

“I wouldn’t say he’s any closer (to signing a new deal) but we are in communication.”

The Wigan boss was also keen to stress that there are a still a number of twists and turns to go in the 2022 season.

“You’re lying if you don’t say you become more aware of the table as the year goes on particularly that top four.

“It will get tighter, you are giving it a glance but a lot of us play each other a good few times.”
