Wigan coach Shaun Wane was full of praise for Sam Tomkins, after the full-back produced a four-try performance at London Broncos.

Tomkins scored four, created two and added a further 12 points with the boot as he led the visitors' comeback from the disappointment of going out of the Challenge Cup to Leeds last weekend.

Delighted

And his coach, Shaun Wane, was delighted with the full-back's display. "I have seen him play now for too many years to be surprised by what he does," Wane said

"His desire to win and compete is excellent, and he impresses me every time he goes out onto that pitch.

"I was quite happy with how everything went and I was very pleased with the defence - it was job done in my book."

Harsh

Meanwhile it was a harsh reintroduction for London coach Tony Rae. He was flown over from Australia to re-take the role he vacated in 2006 after Rob Powell was sacked earlier in the week.

And he admitted his task is a tough one. The coach said: "I did not really see a lot of good things out there today but I am not going to hide from that."

And he reiterated that his comeback will not be long-term.

"I am not interested in the job full time," he continued. "That was part of the agreement of me coming back.

"But I am fully committed to these next six or seven weeks and I aim to put my stamp on things quickly.

"I am not here to make soft calls or soft decisions and I have to put my ideas across quickly."
