McDonnell: Over the moon

Post by josie andrews »

James McDonnell reacts after scoring his first Wigan try in the Warriors win over Catalans Dragons.

McDonnell: “It’s my first try for Wigan and I’ve set the bar there pretty high.”

FT | Wigan Warriors 12-8 Catalans Dragons.

James McDonnell spoke to Wigan TV following Wigan’s 12-8 victory over Catalans Dragons to end the season with a big win on Friday night.

McDonnell scored Wigan’s second try, and his first for the club in the big victory at the DW Stadium. Speaking on his try, he said: “I’m honestly over the moon, it was my full debut last night and the first time my family have watched me play for Wigan so it was a massive day and a massive win.

“It’s my first try for Wigan and I’ve set the bar there pretty high, I don’t know if I’ll score many more and definitely not ones like that. It was nice quick hands from Harry (Smith), a bit of open space on the inside so I just got my head down and went for it.”

McDonnell looked to have been stopped just before the whitewash by Matt Whitley but the Warriors man did find his way over to complete a stylish move: “I felt like I’d been caught at that point , so I was ready to settle it but he bumped off and it opened up for me so I dived over.”

The Warriors claimed the victory over the League Leaders in a great performance, something which McDonnell and the Wigan team have reflected on following the win: “We mentioned in video review today, the Catalans side that we’ve just beat, they’ve been putting points on everyone this year so it made the win even better.”

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
