Wigan Warriors head coach Matty Peet thrilled with being the most disciplined side in Super League

With bans, suspensions and cards galore littering Super League in the opening three rounds, much has been said about the clampdown on foul play.

More bans than ever at this time of the year have been handed out, with the Disciplinary Match Review Panel determined to influence a change in tackle technique during the 2022 campaign.

For one club, though, they have flown under the radar in terms of cards and bans being brandished – Wigan Warriors.

They are the only Super League side not to have been given a yellow or red card by an official and have had no player suspended.

It’s an incredible feat when considering the uproar doing the rounds at present about harsh punishments.

And, for head coach Matty Peet, it is something that he is thrilled about.

“We’ve worked very hard on that,” Peet said in his pre-match press conference ahead of Wigan’s fixture with Toulouse Olympique on Saturday night.

“I know we’ve not had a card or a ban and long may that continue.

“Culturally, mentality-wise having a clear emotional and level state as much as we can has been so important.”

The Warriors currently remain unbeaten in Super League, with victories over Hull KR, Leeds Rhinos and Huddersfield Giants adding to the confidence that is swelling in the club’s ranks.
