Wakefield 32, Wigan 6: Wigan coach Brian Noble slammed the attitude of some of his players after defeat at Wakefield - and accused a few of them of "taking shortcuts".

After the visitors went ahead through Trent Barrett's early score, tries from Jason Demetriou, Ben Jeffries, Matt Blaymire, and Peter Fox gave the home side a commanding 22-6 interval lead.

Despite plenty of ball, the Warriors never looked liked scoring after the interval and, after Barrett was sin-binned for a high tackle on the impressive Adam Watene, further tries from Jeffries and Richard Moore piled on the misery. The Wigan cause was certainly not helped by the sin-binning of star player Barrett, which Noble thought was harsh, but in truth the game was long gone by then.

And Noble admitted: "We're disappointed with ourselves. I thought we were out-enthused.

"They did the little stuff a whole lot better than we did, and were far more enthusiastic.

"We need a check-up in relation to our attitude.

"There was a little bit of endeavour from some and less than a little bit of endeavour from some - and we need to find out the ones that want to be here."
