Warriors winger Abbas Miski looks ahead to an ‘enjoyable game’ against Warrington Wolves in R13 of Betfred Super League this weekend.

Assessing the fixture, Miski said: “Since I’ve been at the Club it’s been one of the more enjoyable games. There’s a large fan base, a lot of history between Wigan and Warrington, the crowd is usually buzzing at the game and they’re really tough games. They’ve got a good team and it’s one of the games I enjoy most.

“They’re going very well. They made the Challenge Cup Final so this week is going to be in preparation for that but as a normal game they’re a good team and the start of their season has shown that.”

On potentially coming up against former team mate Toby King, Miski added: “It’ll be good to potentially come up against him and hopefully two weeks in a row. We know what he can bring, he’s a great player and he’s proving it again this year so he’ll be hard to contain and we’ll have our work cut out for us against him.”

The Warriors will face the Wolves twice in one week with both sides coming head-to-head in Super League before meeting 7-days later at Wembley Stadium in the Betfred Challenge Cup Final. On the challenge of facing each other twice in a short amount of time, Miski said: “You have to bring yourself back quite quickly and I think it’s important for us to remind ourselves and each other that we have to focus on this week. Next week is not here yet so it’s just about focusing on this week’s league game.”

Questioned on his position in the squad, Miski reflected: “I don’t take my position for granted and I think I like it that way, it gives you an edge and you’re forced to do that at this Club with a lot of good young players coming through, there’s a lot of competition within the squad.

“I have a constant eagerness to improve my game and it does help having the men around me, they do make life a lot easier.”

Finally the winger commented on his inside Centre partnership with Adam Keighran: “It helps that he’s a fellow Australian so we get along, lots to talk about but he’s a very good and confident player. He gives me and our edge a lot of confidence, he’s a physical player and we’re all starting to see what he can do with goal kicking too.”
