Warrington Wolves boss Daryl Powell identifies two reasons why his side lost to Wigan Warriors

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.”
