Dan Sarginson looking forward to getting started again at Wigan
Sarginson re-joins Wigan on two-year deal
- England international set to travel to the UK to go straight into pre-season training camp
Dan Sarginson says he can’t wait to get started again at Wigan after re-signing for the Warriors.
The England international signed a new two-year deal with the Cherry and Whites and will return to the UK immediately to join up with the team for a pre-season training camp starting on Sunday.
“I can’t wait to be back around the boys, I’ve obviously got some great memories from my time at Wigan and how successful we were in those three years.” He said speaking from Australia.
“I haven’t had the best time with injuries over here but I’ve got rid of all of those now and I’m really looking forward to the new season now.”
Sarginson left Wigan just over a year ago to play for Gold Coast Titans but injury restricted him to just five appearances. He admitted that the last 12 months has been very frustrating.
“I played my first five games with a knee injury, I really wasn’t at my best and that was hard because I couldn’t prove people wrong because I was playing with the injury.” He continued.
“Then my shoulder went in the Melbourne game and I just didn’t have another opportunity to prove people wrong. That was the most frustrating thing, I didn’t get a chance to give it my best shot. It still frustrates me but I can’t control anything that happened injury-wise, I’ve just got to focus on what I can control and that’s next season at Wigan.”
Asked if his experience Down Under only serves to motivate him, he said: “Definitely! I’d love nothing more than to get back into the England squad and for people to see me doing that. I know a lot of people out here do watch the Super League so to get back into the Wigan team and to find some good form, that will be my biggest motivation moving forward.”
And on the prospect of going straight into a training camp on his return.
“Waney (Shaun Wane) gave me the option to spend a few days with my family when I get back but I told him that I wanted to jump straight into it. I want to get around the boys and get into the swing of it. I’ll see my family over Christmas and I’m really looking forward to that but I want to get a good 7 to 10 days in before then to make sure I’m raring to go in February.”
