Coach cheers Wi­gan dis­play

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

WI­GAN coach Michael Maguire was de­lighted with his side’s re­sponse to their World Club Chal­lenge de­feat as they beat Sal­ford 32-16 to main­tain their un­beaten start to English Su­per League XVI. Scrumhalf Thomas Leu­luai led the way as the War­riors bounced back in style from their 21-15 loss to NRL premiers St Ge­orge Illawarra, scor­ing three tries in each half at the Wil­lows. ‘‘ I’m very pleased,’’ said Maguire. ‘‘ It’s been a tough cou­ple of weeks, lead­ing into a mas­sive game, and we worked hard to make sure this was a pos­i­tive week.’’
