YOUNG Wire will go into their clash with Wigan Warriors on Saturday in confident mood.

Paul Anderson's side made it two wins from two when they smashed Castleford Tigers 48-6 at Victoria Park Stadium at the weekend.

It followed a 50-10 destruction of City of Hull nine days earlier.

“That was another fine display by all 17 players," said assistant coach Chris Rudd, a former Wire centre.

"We started brightly and managed to build up a commanding lead with some fine offensive play.

"Our big lads really kept Castleford on the back foot for long periods and that allowed our halves to dominate and create plenty of opportunities.

"I was also really impressed with our defensive effort; the boys were desperate to keep them from scoring and almost managed to do that.

"We have a great set of lads and team spirit and we will continue to work hard in training in preparation for the visit of Wigan Warriors.
