With Wigan a powerhouse team in the English Super League, getting to within one point is a courageous feat by any team and that is something the Widnes Vikings managed to do, losing to the Warriors by just one point.
It was a Sam Powell field-goal that proved the difference in the end, as Wigan took the game out 33-32 away from home.
Despite the narrow win, however, Betts remains positive about his side and has noticed improvement and maturity in their play.
“We didn’t lose it from the drop goal,” said Betts.
“We lost it from their tryline with a couple of missed tackles.
“The first try was a soft try and we made errors. We were against a well-drilled highly-talented side.
“We worked hard enough to get something out of that game and the lads are really hurting.
“We are in the margins at the Online Casino moment, just the wrong side of them.
“You saw a very tight squad and some lads in my team are maturing.”
If you ask Wigan coach Shaun Wane what he thought about his side’s performance, he would take the win but he was disappointed with his side’s game overall.
“I’m pleased with the win but I wasn’t that pleased with the performance,” said Wane.
“I thought we could play better but to get two points with that team, I’m pleased for the young kids.
“I have given quite a few debuts this year and I always play a lot of youngsters.
“I’m fuming about a few things I saw – poor decisions by the referee – but I am not going to let that affect the win.
“It was a great two points with the team we had out. We showed the quality and the depth in our club.”
