Willie Isa believes that ‘concentration’ is key for Wigan Warriors during their week off from match action.
Adrian Lam’s side will not face any one this weekend as the Betfred Super League takes a week off for the Coral Challenge Cup Final.
Isa states that the squad must make sure they prepare to the full ahead of their next game against Wakefield Trinity a week on Sunday.
“We need to make sure we concentrate during these sessions, this is not really a week off, it is a chance to prepare ourselves for next week.”
He added: “We are focused for the Wakefield game as it will set us up for the weeks after, it is just about making sure we know what we are doing.”
The 30-year-old believes it is a good time for the Warriors to fix up anything that they hope to work on.
“The most important thing is staying focused and getting the boys together for intense training, you can easily just chill, but the coaches have us working hard. It is a good way for us to see where we are at and can have few touch ups and make sure we continue to get our principles right.”
Wigan enter this break on the back of a 20-6 victory over Warrington Wolves, but Isa believes there are still things to ‘fix.’
“The boys were happy with win and it was important for us as a team. Hopefully we can fix up our second half because we had a great start but need to finish better, that is why we are concentrating on the little things.”
The second row is also impressed by new signing Bevan French, who scored his first try for the Club against the Wolves.
“I didn’t know how fast he was; he is a great addition to our team. He’s an exciting player so hopefully the people of Wigan and Super League can see what he has to offer.”
He joked: “He’s a boring guy off the field but an exciting player on it.”
Isa is pleased that Wigan have been able to pull themselves up the table after a slow start to the campaign.
“We’ve been working hard from the start. When people were just focusing on result, we went about our business quietly and started winning games. Nothing has changed, we know we have to keep working but it is great to see ourselves back up there.”
