Wigan boss rattled by defeats
Wigan boss Adrian Lam says he is unsure why his side are struggling to produce results in 2019.
The Warriors have won just once this season and were it not for the lifting of their two-point penalty for salary cap breaches, would be sat bottom of the Super League standings following Friday's 14-6 defeat to Huddersfield.
Morgan Escare scored Wigan's only try at the DW Stadium, with Kruise Leeming and Joe Wardle crossing for the Giants and Lee Gaskell added three goals.
Wigan are a club in transition following Shaun Wane's exit after last year's Grand Final win and Lam, who has been placed in temporary charge ahead of Shaun Edwards' planned arrival next year, says he is puzzled by their plight.
"I'm a bit rattled really," he said. "They looked like a shell of their former selves. We are training well, but we just can't put a finger on it. I'm just a bit lost at the moment.
"They look like they don't have confidence. We are making basic errors, like a simple pass and catch which is uncharacteristic of them. Three simple drop balls with no pressure. That's an attitude problem.
"Maybe there is some attitude that they think we deserve to win without having the effort that comes with it, I don't know. They are emotionally drained from the (Sydney) Roosters game. It's not good."
