Abbas Miski sat down with Wigan TV to reflect on his time at the Club so far with the 2022 season just around the corner.

“Yeah it’s been really good, a tough pre-season so hard training – but enjoyable,” he said, “I met all the boys and I’m close to them now, they’re great, the coaches are great and staff members for the Club as a whole have been really helpful. I’m happy as to where I’m at right now and looking forward to the season.”

Miski has experienced the full pre-season with Wigan, including a new experience in an Army Camp, he explained: “That was really good, it’s something different obviously. There was a lot of things I hadn’t done before, I’ve never done any Army Camp before so that was quite enjoyable and just being around the boys for a full day or two is really cool.

Miski takes on a leadership and communication task with team mates Sam Halsall, Sam Powell and Cade Cust.

“There were spells of hard parts but we weren’t getting woken up in the middle of the night. A lot of it was about the team bonding, the drills were split up between physical drills and mental drills so it was really good. We had a night where we all had a nice dinner together, it wasn’t brutal and it was good.”

He added: “As much as every player will say pre-season is enjoyable because of the hard work – it is at the end of the day! Putting everything in perspective, I’m doing what I love and getting fit is my job so it is enjoyable though sometimes I will say it’s not.”

The winger spoke about a task that players are set each day at breakfast: “That’s the culture part of it, getting to know one another. You walk into breakfast and there’ll be a small task, not something that makes you work hard but something that makes you start a conversation with the people around you. Those things just spark conversations, getting to know one another, what people like or don’t like, how people think and it does help you get closer to that person and eventually helps you become a better person on the field because you work alongside these guys.”

The Warriors face Newcastle Thunder this Sunday (23rd) before a trip to Warrington Wolves the following Saturday (29th), with Miski hoping to feature in both: “I’m feeling good right now. They haven’t really said how many minutes or what people will be playing but I’m hoping I’ll get a fair bit of action in both of those games. It’s a good gauge for myself as to where I’m at.”
