Phil Wilkinson looks at five talking points from Wigan’s 32-0 defeat in their last match of 2017. And that was Shaun Wane’s assessment of their dismal display on the final day. Both sides knew it was their last outing of the year, and Wigan just could not get themselves energised for it; they were flat from the start. A victory, and a sparkling performance, would have at least ensured they finished the season on a high-note. It was a miserable way to finish the year. 2.
Wigan were nilled for the first time this year as they brought the curtain down on a turbulent campaign with a dismal display. Shaun Wane had asked his troops to play for pride and give the fans something to smile about in their last outing of 2017. But it was a miserable performance lacking spirit and spark which will only add to the frustrations of a league campaign which saw them finish outside the play-offs for the first time in a decade.
Shaun Wane will take his Warriors to Wakefield knowing their hopes of claiming a top-four spot have all-but been crushed. Wigan needed Castleford to beat Hull FC last night to keep a play-offs spot within reach. But Lee Radford’s men beat an under-strength Tigers side by 48-16 to secure their own place in the Grand Final race – and crush Wigan’s chances.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
