DESPITE guiding Wigan Warriors to their second final this season, Shaun Wane wants to see an improved performance in next Saturday’s Grand Final against Warrington.
Warriors scored 16 second-half points after a nervy but classic first 40 produced a 6-0 lead for the home side.
But with a 17-17 draw and 22-12 loss to Warrington already this season, Wane is focused on the threat Tony Smith’s men pose to a dream farewell for Sam Tomkins, Pat Richards, Lee Mossop and Chris Tuson.
“I don’t think we were at our best tonight but we did enough to win the game. I don’t think the week off did us any good last week. We were a little bit underdone,” he said.
“Warrington are a very good team. The main spine of the team are fantastic players who can change games.”
“It doesn’t come any bigger than Warrington in a Grand Final.”
Wigan lost to Leeds at final hurdle before Old Trafford last season, despite topping the league table for a second time in three years.
