Wigan Warriors Coach Shaun Wane was a happy man after his side dismantled the Salford Red Devils 45-4 at the DW Stadium.
Wane said: "It is a very satisfying win, I am really proud as it has probably been the toughest week since I have been head coach, and the players have responded tonight."
Wane commented further stating, "We have a lot of young kids in our team and around eight first team players out, whilst we were playing against a team that has been handpicked with some of the best players from around the world. To score forty-five points with some really good tries was impressive."
On man of the match Anthony Gelling, Wane said, "We missed him last week as he could have been the difference in that game but he needed a rest. He was a handful tonight; he is an unbelievable athlete and a great talent. He is not only playing well, he is consistent now as he has been one of our best players for many games now."
Looking ahead to the Hull KR fixture in two weeks, Wane stated: "There will be a group of players back for that game. Blake Green is good, whilst Michael McIlorum and Iain Thornley have a chance to be fit. We are in good shape as I am very happy with the team I have got, but we want competition for places."
On George Williams and Sam Powell Wane stated, "We have had to play with six or seven players down in most of our Super League games this season so I want to put praise on George and Sam as they have been fantastic."
Shaun confirmed that no players had picked up any injuries from the win and that the squad would now enjoy a well-deserved weekend off.
