As the Rugby Super League semi finals get underway, Paul Scunthorpe brands Wigan Warrior’s performance this season as ‘terribly poor’ in this week’s The Last Tackle podcast by Betfred.

Speaking on the teams’ pack, Scunthorpe claims that the Warriors have shown little dominance and creativity throughout the games this season.

He stated: “They’ve gone out in games and look clueless in attack. I don’t know if they know what they’re supposed to be doing out there.”

Head coach Adrian Lam took the team to the Grand Final last year, but COVID-19 meant no fans were allowed at the Stadium.

Scunthorpe expressed sympathy towards Lam and added: “He’s had a tough couple of years, starting off from when he got the job and Sean Edwards came in and it was a bit of a funny situation.

“They had a great year last year, a great performance but they’ve not carried on or built upon that this year.”

The panel praises the younger players in the team, who have had the experience of the SuperLeague this year in the hope of ‘bettering next season’s overall performance’.

Adrian Morley, former Leeds Rhinos second row, added: “Wigan is a team that expects success and demands success, but they’ve just not had it. You can imagine a few supporters are bewildered with what’s gone on”

Tomorrow night, Catalans Dragons clash with Hull KR for the semi-finals of the Rugby Super League, followed by St Helens vs Leeds Rhinos on Fri 1 October which will decide the teams for the Grand Final at Manchester’s Old Trafford.
