IT was a point lost rather than a point won said Jack Hughes after Wolves' draw with his hometown club Wigan at St James' Park in Newcastle on day one of Dacia Magic Weekend 2017.

Hughes, playing out of position at centre for the second week running in the continued absence through injury of Rhys Evans, Toby King and Harvey Livett, felt his score six minutes from time should have secured The Wire a first win over Wigan in four meetings.

Nevertheless the point, as well as the 18-10 loss for Catalans Dragons against Huddersfield Giants on day two, pitches Wolves into the top eight for the first time this season ahead of Friday's trip to fourth-placed Leeds, who were defeated by table toppers Castleford Tigers today 29-18.

"We're disappointed. We set out to win this game, it was a big two points for us," said the 25-year-old.

"Wigan's late try shows you've got to play until the final whistle. You can't clock off, you've always got to keep moving.

"This was a fine example of that and we've got to learn from it.

"I did think my try had won it but there's lessons to be learned there. With four minutes left you'd expect us to be smart enough to slow the game down and win it on our terms."
