Matty Peet reveals why he took Jai Field off at half-time as the Wigan Warriors boss reveals why his side beat Warrington Wolves

Wigan Warriors were able to overcome Warrington Wolves 40-22 in an emphatic performance to set up their Challenge Cup semi-final clash with St Helens in the greatest fashion.

Matty Peet’s Wigan were 40-10 up at one stage and head coach Peet believes his side can still get better.

“I was certainly pleased when the game was in the balance we looked the better team,” Peet said on Sky Sports after the game.

“We would have taken that before the game, I was really pleased, but we do need to learn to keep respect for the ball.

“I’m not going to dwell on the negatives though and I’m gutted you’ve asked me that because I want to be positive and we’ve beaten a really good team tonight.

“The togetherness, you could see we wanted the game tonight, I thought we looked like we cared about the result more and that’s what we want as a club.”

Peet took off Jai Field at half-time and the Wigan boss has revealed why.

“It was always part of the plan to try and look after Jai as he’s taken a few bumps and bruises in the past few weeks.

“Luckily we didn’t need him the second-half.”
