When a scoreline finishes 84-6 in your favour, excitement is expected given the dominance – but for Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane, he was left mildly disappointed, wanting his side to record a shut-out against Hull KR and not have them concede any points.

It was just the one try for Hull KR in the game, a game dominated by Wigan, but he admits his side lost focus and that is when they conceded the try.

“Sometimes that happens, when everything goes right,” Wane said.

“I was pleased with our attack but I didn’t know this was a record score. It was a great win and we scored some great tries.

“I’m disappointed to concede the six points. I don’t mean to sound arrogant but I was gutted we didn’t concentrate for their try.

“We looked after the players to make sure they were in good nick today. It’s down to the mentality of the players and how they approach the game and that was outstanding. It’s pleasing on the back of the St Helens win.

“I knew we were in the zone and I could tell in our team meeting the players were in a good place.”

Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock made no excuses, conceding that not only were Wigan far, far too strong, but that his side could not conjure up anything and it was just not their night as everything they tried to do, did not come off.

“Everything that could have gone right went right for Wigan and everything that could go wrong for us went wrong.

“The boys will learn a massive lesson in how to play rugby league. They named a full strength backline and we knew it would be tough. Everything they did turned to gold.

“We are extremely disappointed but we won’t be letting this linger. We are extremely disappointed for our supporters.”
