Wigan capable of top four finish says winger

Wigan Warriors 24-24 Warrington Wolves

Wigan Warriors winger Joe Burgess says his side are “definitely capable” of making the top four come Super 8s end but need to win all of their matches to do so.

The Warriors are six points adrift of fourth-placed Hull FC but are currently surrounded by teams such as St Helens and Huddersfield who are on similar points totals.

Burgess notched a second half brace in Wigan’s 28-12 victory over Widnes Vikings and the winger admits that they need to be better in ‘big games’.

“If we do that in a big game, we’re going to be struggling, it’ll punish us way more.” Burgess told Wigan Today 

The former Sydney Rooster also said about his current side’s situation: “We’re not where we want to be in the table, we want to be in the top four,”

“It’s going to be hard but we’re definitely capable of doing it.”

With ten games remaining, and the teams around them left to play if they finish in the top eight, Wigan could peak at the right time and Burgess knows the Warriors have no second chances.

Questioned about Wigan needing to win their remaining matches, he added: “100 per cent. We can’t let anything slip. I don’t think there’s any room for error.”
