Wane full of praise for side

Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane was quick to praise his team for their response as they secured their place in the Grand Final.

The Warriors had led Hull 14-0 at the break after dominating the first half but they were then put under immense pressure in the second 40 minutes.

Wane's men looked nervous as Hull winger Steve Michaels scored a try in the 62nd minute and the Black and Whites took a 18-16 lead.

However, late tries from Sam Powell and Anthony Gelling ensured Wigan will play Warrington at Old Trafford in the Grand Final.

Speaking after the match, Wane was delighted with the fact that his players found a way to get the job done.

He told Sky Sports: "With 10 minutes to go, I felt a bit of panic and sent a message on to tell them to stay in the systems that we've practiced and we did that and got the success.

"All praise goes to the players, who have turned up to train injured and play injured, and I'm pleased for the fans who stuck behind us because they realised the position we're in.

"I said to the players Hull would come back, they're a good team and there's things we need to fix, no question about that.

"We've got a great team spirit. We had some close-to-the-heart meetings this week where people spoke honestly."
