Smith Looking Forward to 2013

Smith Looking Forward to 2013

The new season is just a month away and with pre-season games around the corner everyone at the Club is looking forward to the new Super League season.

Wigan will have a new Half Back Partnership in Matty Smith and Blake Green, Matty joined Wigan in the middle of last year and made 9 appearances grabbing one try while Green has arrived pre-season from Hull KR and is a real exciting prospect.

Matty Smith told us,

"From day one the guys were great with me and I am now really looking forward to this season.I think we have a good team and hopefully we will be up there this season.

"Last season I was just happy to get a place in the side, but I am really pleased I have that number 7 shirt now and I can concentrate on help running the team and getting the side around the park and do what I do best.

"Many great players have worn that 7 shirt and I am privileged to be among the type of players that have worn it. I believe I can do it justice, I believe in my own ability and I believe I can be a success at the Club."

On his new partnership with Blake, Matty added,

"I have got on really well with Blake from day one and we got through some useful work on the dry tracks out in Florida. When I've played against him in the past he has always caused problems and when Shaun Wane told me we had signed Blake I was made up. He is good at certain things, me at others so hopefully we will come together and be a good partnership."
