100 miles an hour: Hastings

  • Jackson Hastings looks ahead to making his possible debut for Wigan Warriors as his side host Warrington Wolves in the season opener at the DW Stadium on Thursday.

  • The 24-year-old speaks to Wigan TV at the 2020 Betfred Super League season launch at Emerald Headingley Stadium, Leeds on Friday.

  • Hastings: “I will do my best for the boys, no matter what the situation is.”

Jackson Hastings says his Wigan Warriors side know what they’ll get from him ahead of the opening Betfred Super League tie against Warrington Wolves on Thursday.

The 2019 Steve Prescott Man of Steel is raring to go as Adrian Lam’s side kick start the new campaign at the DW Stadium in a mouth-watering clash.

Whilst speaking to Wigan TV at the 2020 Betfred Super League season launch at Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds on Friday, Hastings said: “I think the team knows what they will get from me now - I’m going to be 100 miles an hour and will do my best for the boys, no matter what the situation is. I’m really proud I’ve got this badge on my chest now and hopefully we will get off to a good start of the year.”

Hastings says he is ‘really proud’ to be representing Wigan.

The star stand-off admits he is doing his best to remain calm ahead of his first competitive run out with his new team, after joining from Salford Red Devils in the off-season.

“You try and stay relaxed but it starts to become real. With it being my first game, there will be a bit more emotion around - my jersey presentation and things like that will really get the blood flowing.”

The 24-year-old is looking forward to playing Warrington and says it is the type of game as to the reason why he joined Wigan.

He said: “A massive reason I came to this club was to play in big games. Wigan V Warrington to start off a calendar year is obviously one of the biggest games you can play in.”
