Wigan Warriors players return to training
Players back to work during festive period
- Shaun Wane happy with ‘professional’ players
The Wigan players returned to training today as they continued to prepare for the 2018 campaign.
Having had a few days off over Christmas the First Team squad were put through their paces as the new season edges ever closer.
Head Coach, Shaun Wane, said it was important the players kept working hard during the festive period.
“We’re in for three days in between (Christmas and New Year) to keep ticking over. The lads have made some fantastic gains, having a break from Christmas Eve until the second of January is just too long. They wanted to come in and keep things ticking over with some running and weight sessions.
“They’re professionals, they have to keep on top of things and make sure their gains stay consistent. They’ll spend time with their families but will look after themselves too.”
One player who has certainly impressed Wane in recent weeks is Dan Sarginson who returned to Wigan and went straight into the Red Bull Training Camp in Wales.
“His metres, speed and endurance- he butchered everybody!” Said Wane.
“Tom Davies was upset- he was number two! GPS can tell me so much including a player’s heart-rate and he tried his best in everything.
“For him to comeback and kill it like he did in Wales shows just how determined he is.”
Wane said he was also impressed with Sarginson’s desire to return to the Warriors.
“Other clubs were looking at him but he never considered going anywhere else, he loves it here. We get along great, he’s a competitive person and fits in perfectly for us. The lads love him.
“Money’s not everything. You need to enjoy your job and he enjoys being a Wigan player, he’s going to be good for us and with him and Tom (Davies) on the same side they’re going to get a lot of metres for us.”
Good to be back in training with the lads this morning 🏃♂️ @WiganWarriorsRL— George Williams (@George7Williams) December 28, 2017
