Wane - Room for improvement

Shaun Wane: has warned his side they must do better against Warrington

There were some poor defensive reads, some one-on-one misses, things we can be better at, but we'll fix up for Warrington.

Wigan coach Shaun Wane insisted there was still plenty of work to do despite seeing his side get back to winning ways against London Broncos.

The Warriors moved on from their shock 37-36 defeat at the hands of Widnes last weekend with a 42-30 result at the DW Stadium on Sunday.

Brett Finch bagged a pair of tries for the hosts while Pat Richards crossed once and kicked seven goals to finish with a personal haul of 18 points.

However Wane - who recalled Sam Tomkins, Richards, Thomas Leuluai and Sean O'Loughlin after resting them against the Vikings - wants his players to work on their defensive frailties ahead of next Friday's clash with Warrington.

"London did a good job but I'm disappointed with the tries we let in," he said. "We've a lot to work on.

"We scored some good tries but 30 points is unacceptable. I don't mean any disrespect to London Broncos, but we have high standards here.

"There were some poor defensive reads, some one-on-one misses, things we can be better at, but we'll fix up for Warrington."

Brave Broncos

The Broncos actually led 18-6 at one stage in the first half, only for Wigan to hit back with three tries in the space of six minutes before the interval.

Australian Michael Witt had 18 points in a losing cause, the half-back getting his side's first and last tries to go alongside five goals.

"We scored 42 points last week and 30 today so we're getting better offensively," London coach Rob Powell said.

"Last week has given the players some confidence to play with the ball and it's pleasing to come to somewhere like Wigan and score 30 points.

"But if you score 30 points, especially away from home, you need to back it up in defence to win the game. It's disappointing we weren't stronger defensively at crucial parts in the game."
