// Warriors Prepare for Florida Trip
Wigan will continue their preparations for the new season and the World Club Challenge down under in January with a ten day training camp to Florida.
The Warriors use the National Training Centre near Orlando and have doen now on several occasions.
The Florida trip where the players can get quality sessions both on and off field and on a dry track will see the whole of the squad come together and is a huge part of the pre-season plans ahead of the warm up games which get underway shortly after the team return home and then the big kick off on February 7th at the DW against Huddersfield Giants.
Speaking about the trip, Head Coach Shaun Wane told us,
"The players have a programme to follow between Christmas and New Year before we leave for America on the 4th January. When we get their we will hopefully have a full squad who are all fit and well and ready to go.
"The trip is really intense we have everything and everything we do is geared towards the new season. We have fitness, skills, swimming, cycling, the facilities are second to none, every day is a warm day and we can get hours of skills into the team and with the Sports Science element we know just how far we can push them all to get the maximum benefits individually and as a team."
And on the squad Wigan have ahead of the new campaign, Shaun added,
"I am very happy with who we have in our squad. I understand we have had some quality players leave us but we have in years before and we have replaced them with quality individuals. Matty Bowen will bring us alot, he will bring us much both on and off the field, the same as Eddy Pettybourne will. He is a quality individual who has played in the grind of the NRL for many years and the two London lads who have come in have done a great job. They have fitted into our system really well and both are hungry and want to challenge for places in our side, the same can be said about all our new recruits. We are in a good place and I am confident going into this year."
