Farrell: We’ll take pointers from previous wins

LIAM Farrell admitted Thursday night’s Super 8s clash with Huddersfield ‘felt like a play-off game’.

The win for Warriors launched them five points ahead of the Giants in fourth spot – and it could prove a useful cushion with away games against Leeds and Warrington on the horizon.

I’m sure we’ll be looking at what we did right in those games

But Farrell is determined for Wigan not to rest on any points advantage in the league table to help them to the play-offs, and is confident ahead of next week’s trip to Leeds.

“The intensity from here on in will get even harder and it starts again next week with Leeds,” he said.

Wigan lost 26-14 at Headingley in March but have since clocked up memorable wins over the Rhinos at Magic Weekend and at the DW Stadium.

And Farrell says those wins will provide useful pointers to help them repeat the feat.

“We were probably trying to gel together a bit and that time of year we weren’t getting the results we wanted,” he said. “Since we’ve played them again we have got great results against them so I’m sure we’ll be looking at what we did right in those games.”
