Warrington Wolves boss Daryl Powell was thoroughly disappointed with how his side performed against Wigan Warriors tonight.
The Wolves were 40-10 down at one stage, but rallied with two consolation tries to end the scoring at 40-22.
It proved to Powell that Warrington aren’t there yet with the former Castleford Tigers head coach citing a tough Easter period and just simply Wigan being better as the reasons why his side lost.
“There’s a lot to digest, but I thought we started really poorly in both halves and Wigan played well,” Powell said to Sky Sports.
“We defended really poorly in the first-half, but I still thought we could reel the game back in.
“We had to defend better than that in the second-half – we’ve been through a tough Easter period but we’ve come up with a team that are a little bit better than us.
“I didn’t think we got forward in defence, I don’t think we gave ourselves a good chance to deal with their speed.
“We’re not quite where we want to be, Wigan are a bit better than us and we didn’t handle it well.
“The Easter program was rough and they’ve come out of it better than us.”
