Fielden Looks Forward to Bulls Clash

Stuart Fielden says that Friday's huge clash with his former club Bradford will be the biggest game yet in his short Wigan career.

"This is my biggest game for Wigan, there hasn't been that many games, but I am looking massively forward to it.

"It is a big game because it's my old club; it's a massive game for me and for the club because we need to win it."

Fielden signed for the Warriors in June for a world record transfer fee, linking up with former coach Brian Noble.

Since joining, the Warriors have won 7 out of 8 games, and the man nicknamed 'Fearless' by the Bulls knows the importance of winning on Friday.

"We want to win our three remaining games, we don't want to be coming down to the last day having to beat Hull.

"They are going to know me and I know them. They will know how to handle me, or so they think ,and the same regards me on their players. However it's all about implementing it on the day.

"I'm not too sure if they will put too much onus on me, probably not, but I am sure there will be a few shenanigans going on out there!"

Wigan's new number 37 reflected on the only other club he has played for during his professional career.

"I had ten massive years at Bradford and no matter what has been said I wouldn't have changed a single thing. I gave everything, and in return the club and the fans gave everything back.

"But the important issue is the two points, it's not just about me and Nobby.

"Two sets of fans will come and loyally support their teams and with two big teams there will be some good rugby.

Finishing, Fielden reinforced the importance to focus on performance.

"OK there is a bit of a side event, it's mine and Nobby's old club, but that's all it is; because when the whistle goes it's just another game of rugby."

Stuart's full interview can be heard on the latest Wigan Warriors podcast which will be released on Thursday.
