Lam unhappy with Warriors attitude
Wigan's poor defence and attitude was to blame for the golden point loss to Hull FC on Sunday, coach Adrian Lam has revealed.
The Warriors were looking to bounce back from the World Club Challenge defeat against Sydney Roosters when they entertained a Hull side who had not won in 13 games.
However, they suffered another defeat, this time at the death as Marc Sneyd bagged a drop goal in extra time with the scores level at 22-22.
Lam was hoping for a fast start but did not get one, and blamed his side's poor attitude for the defeat.
"We started flat and were flat through the whole game," he said. "We battled hard to get back into it at the end of the game but there wasn’t good signs there right throughout the match."
Defence is an area that Lam believes needs improving if his team are to improve.
"We are all over the shop," he added. "We are training really well but we are not putting that into the games. It’s just attitude. They know how we want to defend and they do it well. But when it actually unfolds, the players are doing things we are not teaching them."
