Wigan Warriors’ Matt Peet given deserved award

Wigan Warriors Head Coach Matt Peet has been named as the Betfred Coach of the month for April following a hat-trick of victories.

Last month saw Wigan claim bragging rights in the Good Friday Derby with an impressive defensive display against St Helens. This was backed up with a stunning away performance in the following round which saw Wigan end Warrington’s eight game unbeaten run with a tough fought 13-6 win.

The month’s fixtures were rounded off back at the DW Stadium with a 22-6 victory over Super League strugglers, Wakefield Trinity.

April’s award is the second time Peet has collected the accolade in his tenure at Wigan, the first coming February 2022, his first month in charge.

The voting panel commented on Peet by saying: “Wigan’s form since their opening round defeat has been sensational and Matt Peet deserves so much credit for that. Tactically he has overcome the loss of Jai Field, is winning games with a forward in the halves (albeit a ball-playing one) and has maintained the manner and quality of performance. The teams they have beaten are amongst the best in the competition this year.”

On winning the award, Matt Peet said: “It’s pleasing because it suggests that the team is playing well and it’s certainly a reflection of the efforts of the players and the staff.

“It’s nice for me to win the award but a Coach is as good as his players and I’m very lucky with my staff – particularly Tommy (Leuluai) and Lockers (Sean O’Loughlin) who pick up the detail on a day-to-day basis so the credit is shared 100% amongst everyone at the Club.”
