Wigan Warriors Coach Criticizes Adam Keighran’s Red Card Offense

Wigan Warriors’ Head Coach Peet Blunt on Keighran’s “Poor” Red Card Offense

In a tense match-up between Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves, Wigan’s head coach Matt Peet had little sympathy for his center Adam Keighran, who was shown a red card in the closing stages of Saturday’s game. The Australian player was sent off for a reckless shoulder charge into the head of Warrington’s young center Arron Lindop, an action that is likely to result in Keighran being suspended for next weekend’s Challenge Cup Final.

Peet was forthright in his assessment of the incident, stating, “> I thought it was poor from him to be honest. He has done things like this before and I have spoken to him about it. He’s going to be disappointed in his actions there. I think there was some mitigation but he has to be tidier than that. He will be the first one to put his hands up and it might cost him.”

While Wigan secured a narrow 19-18 victory over Warrington’s young squad, Peet acknowledged that his side struggled throughout the game, admitting, “> I thought Warrington were the better team for most of the game, they were unlucky not to win.” He further praised the Wolves’ performance, stating, “> Take nothing away from Warrington, they had a young team out. Good day for them and a difficult day for us.”

Peet’s honesty in addressing Keighran’s indiscipline and Wigan’s overall performance resonates with rugby league enthusiasts, who value transparency from their team’s leadership. As the teams look ahead to the Challenge Cup Final, Peet’s comments will likely generate discussion among fans and pundits alike.
