  • Youngster says he is determined to help Wigan reach the Grand Final

Tom Davies says he will do everything he can to help Wigan reach the Grand Final after the Warriors went third following victory over Hull.

Having led 20-6 early on in the second half, Wigan were pegged back and went behind 22-20 with just ten minutes remaining.

The Warriors came strong in the end with tries from Anthony Gelling and John Bateman sealing a dramatic win.

Speaking after the game, Davies said: “We made hard work of it didn’t we? We’ve got the result though and that was all that mattered for us.

“We knew that it was a must win game and we put ourselves in that position from games earlier in the season but we turned up, have done a job and hopefully we can take that momentum into next week now.

“We are our own worst enemy at times with errors and penalties but when you have got influential players like Sam (Tomkins) and Sean (O’Loughlin) and all the other senior boys in the squad it’s good because they know how to settle you down and get you back to winning ways by telling us what we need to do and how to get back on top.”

Davies scored on his return to the side after missing the last three through injury. After pulling out of the warm-up at Wembley due to injury, he said he is determined to help Wigan reach the Grand Final to make up for it.

“It feels like a really long time that I’ve been out.” He said.

“I think it’s been three weeks or so but missing Wembley was hard for me and I was just itching to get back playing again and really make the most of it.

“It was heartbreaking to miss out but I said to myself after it that if we can get to the Grand Final then I need to be there and make an impact so that’s my aim now, to go out in every game and make a difference whether that be scoring tries, saving them or making carries then I will do everything I can to get us there.”
