Aim the Same

Willie Isa says Wigan must not alter their aim as they look to push on and make their way up the league table.

Having secured a place in the semi finals of the Challenge Cup, Wigan face a challenge to make the top four in Super League with seven points to make up ahead of the end of the season.

Isa, who made his 50th appearance for Wigan last week has only missed seven games since signing from Widnes.

“I just try to do my job for the team,” the humble forward said.

“I’m not a flashy player or the kind of player that really stands out but I just try and do as best I can for the team and that’s what counts.

“I got a shirt for my 50th game but I didn’t know that (missing only seven games). I’ve always said since day one that it’s a huge privilege for me to be at this Club, to play with these players and work with the great people at this Club. To pull that jersey on really means a lot to me.

“Every year we expect wins here and we expect to win trophies and we’ve got to stick to that goal.”

Wigan head into Sunday’s game with Widnes having picked up a point against Huddersfield last time out and Isa is all too aware of the threat his former side pose.

“The draw makes the top four harder but we just have to fix it quick and turn up this week.

“Last year Widnes beat us at the DW twice and it cost us in the League Leader’s so we need to concentrate as they’re coming into the game on a high after their win over Leigh.”
