Sam Powell says the players are enjoying working with Kicking Consultant Charlie Hodgson.

Former Rugby Union player Hodgson who scored 269 points in 38 games for England recently joined the Warriors’ backroom staff on a part-time basis to help improve the club’s goal-kicking.

Speaking to Wigan Today, Powell said: “He’s working with us as a group and one-on-one, doing place kicking and goal-kicking.

“From meeting him last week, the big thing for me was the amount of time we need to do it ourselves.

“Sam Tomkins and I were in for an hour on our day off doing bits and we’ve done some on other days, too.

“He’s not going to make everyone kick the same way, it’s about him finding our styles, videoing it and giving pointers from there.

“The main thing is when you’ve missed, knowing where you’ve gone wrong.

“If it goes wrong, what have you done wrong? That’s the main thing

“If we can take it on individually and put the practice in, I’m sure we’ll see improvements.”
