Report: 

Well realistically I think what we saw was the difference in quality between the Wigan and St Helens sides but sad as it is to say it, I thought our boys did well.

The effort and commitment was there, they never gave up, we just weren't good enough to overcome an awesome St Helens defence.

Special praise for the tackle from Chris Ashton which denied Vinnie Anderson a try. He could have just given up as Saints were scoring at will, but he didn't. He played in the 21s last Sunday and clearly he doesn't want to go back there.

Ashton's try was excellent as well. But I remember thinking that Mark Calderwood has not had a ball out wide like that all season.

At the end of the day Wigan's spirit was not enough to compete with St Helens but if they show the same spirit on Monday, surely we will win?

As always Knowsley Road produced a great atmosphere and despite relegation problems we sung loud and proud for the full 80 minutes. That's what we have to do, if we are to go down this year, let's do it with a smile and a laugh!

Last season's 75-0 loss was an embarrassment. And even though 48-10 isn't pretty, I don't think we embarrassed ourselves with that performance.

Wigan started well I thought and probably should have scored erly doors.

But it was Saints who took the lead as Paul Sculthorpe scored the first in the 7th minute as he went through a huge gap in our defence.

Jamie Lyon set Paul Wellens up for the second try in the 18th minute and at 12-0 just before half time you had to be happy that we were still in the match.

But just before half time, a killer blow! Sean Long finished off a break from Leon Pryce to make it 18-0.

Into the second half and it was soon 24-0 as Adrian Gardner scored in the corner.

We feared being nilled again but much to our relief Chris Ashton made a 70 metre run down the wing to get us on the scoreboard in the 52nd minute. Pat Richards missed the conversion - 24-4.

Then came a video ref decision against which I haven't see again, which could have made a game of it but Richards was denied a try, for a knock on I think/

Into the final quarter and Wigan's effort began to show as they tired. Saints scored tries for fun with Ian Hardman, Jason Hooper (2) and Leon Pryce all touching down.

After Pryce's try Saints had 8 minutes to hit the half century but it was Wigan who had the last say in the game, with a late try for Jordan James, his first for the club.
