Super League: Wigan Warriors heap further misery on London Broncos

Shaun Wane: Wigan's defensive efforts against the Broncos delighted their head coach

Wigan coach Shaun Wane heaped praise on Josh Charnley - but not because the winger grabbed a hat-trick of tries in his side's win over London Broncos.

The England international took his tally to an injury-hit season to 14, despite being sidelined for two months, as he helped the Warriors crush their hosts 58-6 in the capital.

However it was Charnley's defence that impressed Wane the most, helping the reigning Super League champions bounce back after two successive defeats.

"To have scored so many tries in such a short space of time shows you just what a talent Josh is," Wane said.

"To be honest though, it was his defensive work at the other end of the pitch that probably pleased me most today.

"I thought we dominated the middle of the park for the full 80 minutes and went about our business in a very professional manner.

"We are in a really good place at the moment - we are confident and we scored some really good tries.

"Obviously I would have liked to have kept London scoreless, but I am happy with the number of points that we scored."

Bitter pill

The Broncos did manage a score of their own through Thomas Minns, but head coach Joe Grima felt his side had been "embarrassed" after conceding 10 tries in total.

"Today is a really bitter pill to swallow," Grima said. "As a coach you know you are going to be let down from time to time, but today we were unenthused and embarrassed.

"Players do not go out there to deliberately drop balls and play badly.

"I never question the effort of the players, but today I really have to question the way we went about the game.

"We were told we would feel the wrath of Wigan today and that proved the case."
