Matty Smith is looking forward to making the Number Seven shirt his own come the 2013 season.
Smith - who will form a new half back partnership with Blake Green after the departure of Tommy Leuluai and Brett Finch - knows it will be a tough test, but is looking forward to the challenge.
He told Wigan TV:
"They're big boots to fill but I believe in my own ability.
Being the Number 7, you have to try to take control of the team.
I believe I can do well for this club."
