"He's getting what he deserves - he's in the England set-up and he's scoring tries for fun for us," BBC Sport quotes Wane as saying. "He has been consistent and he trains the way he plays. He's a great advert for any young kid wanting to play the game.
"The way we completed our sets and played at the right end of the field in difficult conditions - those were the quality things that we did and were the telling factors.

Wigan won the qualifying playoff against Huddersfield 22-8.
