Leigh Leopards Coach Remains Upbeat Despite Heavy Defeat to Wigan Warriors

Leigh Leopards coach Adrian Lam remains upbeat despite their 40-12 defeat to Wigan Warriors in the Battle of the Borough on Thursday night. The Leopards suffered a heavy loss to their local rivals Wigan in Round 7 of the Super League, having to play without key players Edwin Ipape, John Asiata, Tom Amone, Robbie Mulhern, and Tom Briscoe, who are all sidelined with injuries.

Leigh have faced a tough challenge with injuries so far this season, and with that context in mind, Lam says he remains ‘positive’ despite the heavy scoreline against the world champion Wigan team. Speaking after the match, Lam acknowledged that while there were some poor moments, he was proud of the effort put forth by his players, who were up against a clinical Wigan side that capitalized on their opportunities.

“We’ve just got to stay positive and stay united as a team. Some guys had to play extended minutes, and that will benefit us when the others come back.”

The Leopards boss emphasized the need to stay positive and united as a team during this challenging period, noting that some players were forced to play extended minutes due to the injury crisis. Lam believes this experience will ultimately benefit the team once their key players return to full fitness.

Lam Focused on Adapting Game Plan

Despite the recent run of defeats, Lam remains excited about the challenge ahead and is focused on finding ways to adapt the team’s game plan to overcome the absence of their starting front-row. The coach is confident that Leigh are close to turning things around and is determined to maintain a positive mindset throughout the process.

Leigh now have a nine-day break as they prepare to defend their Challenge Cup crown in a quarter-final rematch against Hull KR at Sewell Group Craven Park next Saturday.
