// Best Win Ever Says Wane
A beaming Wigan Warriors head coach Shaun Wane labelled his sides win over Leeds at the Magic Weekend as his best ever as a coach.
Despite a growing injury list his side recorded a famous win against the pace setting Rhinos.
Wane admitted four players shouldn't have even played, "the adversity that they've been through (this week), there were four players on there today who should never have played. They haven't trained all week and played with injections but we had nobody else, not another player so they had to play. That was against my gut feeling, it was wrong of me to do that but they turned up and put their bodies on the line and did it tough against a big athletic, skilful Leeds team."
Leeds almost snatched it at the end but for a try to be correctly disallowed for a Joel Moon knock on in mid-air, a decision both coaches agreed on. Wane said, "I think it was the right result, I would have been distraught for the players to lose that. I said before we left Orrell that not many people outside of the team expected us to win today but we knew we could."
On the injury crisis Shaun said, "Our medical staff have been working shifts this week! This is the worst one I've had, when I thought it couldn't get any worse Scott Taylor and George Williams walked in from training (injured). I didn't know what to do but they put their hands up and wanted to play. Not only did they play our middle dominated them today, ran hard and stuck their shoulder in."
Paying tribute to Michael McIlorum Wane commented, "He's only 89 kilos, and how he puts his body on the line! He is the toughest bloke I've ever coached. I was made up for him to score that try."
Shaun confirmed that Blake Green looked to have suffered a ruptured bicep in the game and would go for a scan on Monday. Of the current injured players Eddy Pettybourne may be the only one looking to return against Salford on Thursday.
