Liam Farrell speaks to Wigan TV following the Warriors’ win over Hull KR at the DW Stadium.
Second row praises fans for helping his side cruise to a 52-10 victory on Friday night.
- Farrell: “It’s been a while since I got over, so to get two on one night is really good and it tops off a brilliant birthday week.”
Liam Farrell says Wigan Warriors’ attacking prowess reflected in the atmosphere at the DW Stadium on Friday night as his side beat Hull KR 52-10.
Five tries in the space of 13 second half minutes lifted the Cherry and White faithful as they strolled to a comfortable back-to-back home win and fifth consecutive victory in the league.
Speaking to Wigan TV after the game, he said: “I thought they (the fans) turned out in numbers. I think it really helped with the performance we put in.
“It was a really good attacking display by some of the lads and we were silky and threw the ball about, and I think it got the fans buzzing.”

And in the week he celebrated his 29th birthday, the second row was delighted to contribute to the win.
“It’s been a while since I got over, so to get two on one night is really good and it tops off a brilliant birthday week.”
