Wane to stay in charge at Wigan Warriors for Leeds game


Wigan assistant coach Shaun Wane will remain in charge for their Super League clash with Leeds on Friday in the absence of coach Michael Maguire.

Maguire flew home to Australia last week for family reasons.

"He was able to watch the game last week from home and was in contact straight after the game and I expect the same this week," said Wane.

The Warriors thrashed Hull 46-0 on Friday - a result which left them four points clear at the top of the table.

Wane said: "We're just going to keep doing what we normally do every week.

"It is extremely sad the circumstances in which I have taken over and we all wish Michael and his family well at this time."
