Jai Field is finding his new surroundings ‘very exciting’ as he begins his first pre-season at Wigan Warriors.

The Aussie put pen to paper back in early November 2020 and begun training with the Cherry and Whites at the end of last week.

Speaking to Wigan TV, the 23-year-old explained how coming from the Australian summer into the depths of the English winter had caught him off guard.

“It’s certainly been a bit of a shock, from sweating all day to coming here when it’s snowing. It’s a little different [he joked].”

The versatile speedster, who can be deployed in a number of positions, discussed his eagerness to be involved in a strong Wigan side in 2021.

“It’s definitely a great squad here, it’s very exciting and hopefully we can perform this season.”

However, the Wollongong-born Field admitted that because of the strength of the side, he doesn’t expect to walk into a starting position.

“Coming off a Grand Final loss, with most of that squad still here, it may be me coming off the bench to begin with for me.

“I could also be playing in the halves or filling in at full back at times, so we will see how we go.”
