PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Liam Farrell has revealed how Matty Peet delivered a “shock to the system” after Wigan Warriors’ Challenge Cup win – by telling his players to raise their game. Peet is presiding over a genuine renaissance at the DW Stadium after guiding the cherry and whites to victory over Huddersfield Giants at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month. Yet shortly after they lifted the famous old trophy above their heads in the capital, Peet’s players were given a stark message by their head coach.
