Super League: Wigan forced to change in Huddersfield canteen

Wigan Warriors players
Wigan have won seven of their last nine games in Super League

Wigan Warriors players were forced to change in a canteen at John Smith's Stadium before Sunday's win at Huddersfield Giants.

A power cut in the main stand forced Wigan to set up a temporary dressing room under the north stand.

"It was just one of those things. We have a motto at Wigan - any time, any place, anywhere," head coach Shaun Wane told the club website.

"You can't let things like that affect you so we just got on with it."

Liam Farrell and Joe Burgess both scored twice as the Warriors won 32-18 ahead of their local derby with St Helens this Friday.

It was captain Sean O'Loughlin's 350th game for the club as the victory kept them just two points off leaders Leeds Rhinos.

"I never look at tables," Wane told BBC Radio Manchester.

"I honestly never look at them. The only thing I'm concentrating on is getting this review with the players out of the way and then concentrating on St Helens.

"What will happen, will happen and we're in control of what we do on the field and that's all I'm bothered about."
