Paul Rowley defends Super League rivals after criticism

Salford Red Devils head coach Paul Rowley

Salford Red Devils boss Paul Rowley has defended Wigan Warriors attack as the Warriors prepare to test it against Super League’s best defence in recent times St Helens.

Many have questioned the Wigan attack saying it is too reliant on the now injured Jai Field and Bevan French.

Jamie Jones-Buchanan said: “For me Wigan lack some of the tools.

“Morgan Smithies shows it for me there with that stat that he has only made 35 passes all season.

“He and Oliver Partington came through the system together and Paul Rowley has signed him and is getting him to do something different.

“For some reason, Wigan aren’t interested in that part of the game and they don’t have that through the middle and are limited in their options.

“But they are a very dangerous team, very industrious and have stamina.”

“They rely on a bit of magic they put all their eggs in one basket and it is very very good.

However, Paul Rowley answered the questioned if they are a dangerous team with:

“30 points and a few missed conversions says they are. I take the point about structured plays and not scoring off them but Matt Peet seems to want his players to play of chaos, they practice chaos to allow them to capitalise on those moment.

“They are prioritising ruck speed to play on the back of this.”
