Escaré excited for new year

  • Morgan Escaré shares his thoughts after returning to pre-season last week.

  • Full back is looking forward to working under new Head Coach Adrian Lam in 2019.

  • Escaré: “I’ve had a long break off after playing for France, but now I’m back for training with Wigan and I’m enjoying it.”

French international Morgan Escaré expects his role as a full back to change under the guidance of Adrian Lam in 2019.

Escaré returned to pre-season training last week, after he helped France to qualify for the 2021 World Cup in November’s European Championship.

He will wear the No.1 jersey next season following the departure of Sam Tomkins.

Escaré said: “I had a meeting with him (Lam) last Monday and from that I knew he was a really good coach. He told me his ideas and what he wants to do in training and I’m looking forward to getting started again in 2019.

“His ideas for the full back position are different to those of Waney (Shaun Wane). The way we will play and our attacking technique will be different, and I can’t wait to see how it comes together.”

Escaré scored two tries and converted six goals to contribute 20 points in France’s 28-10 win over Scotland in November, which saw them crowned champions of the 2018 European Championship.

He said: “I’m really happy. I’ve had a long break off after playing for France and I had a good time, but now I’m back for training with Wigan and I’m enjoying it.

“Going home as a Super League Champion with my Grand Final Winners ring was great. All my friends and my mum and dad were really happy and it’s a memory that will stay with me.”

Lam’s squad will travel to the Lake District on January 2nd for a two-day training camp and Escaré is looking forward to the new year.

“I’m excited because it’s a new place and it will be my first time in the Lake District. It will be a nice change from the usual surroundings at Orrell.”
