Marshall aims to put things right in ‘biggest game of the year’

Wigan winger Liam Marshall admits the players are desperate to right the wrongs of last week’s defeat to St Helens and book their place at Old Trafford.

The Warriors were soundly beaten by St Helens in last Friday’s qualifying final and must beat Salford tonight to reach the Grand Final.

Marshall admits the Warriors were blown away by Saints, but insists the players will learn lessons from the defeat.

He said: “It was very disappointing. We got blown away in the first 20 and we always talk about in big games about starting well, but we didn’t do that.

“There are a lot of lessons to be learned from last week and hopefully we can put them right on Friday.

“After games like that and tough losses, you’re raring to go for the next game and this second chance allows us to have another go and another crack at making the Grand Final.

“The lads are chomping at the bit to put things right.

He added: “It’s the biggest game of the year and it’s the one you want to be involved in.

“It’s why everyone plays rugby – to try to get to the big finals and win trophies. We need to make sure we perform to our best though and then we’ll get a crack at doing the back-to-back.”
