Greenwood ready for Super League restart

Wigan Warriors forward Joe Greenwood has said he will be ready to restart the Super League season, whenever it may be.

The second-rower, who has returned from his loan spell at Leeds Rhinos, has opened up about the challenges of being in lockdown at this time.

He said: “At first, you’re just trying to get used to it. Trying to keep busy and stuff. It was a bit of a shock, a bit like when you retire from rugby.

“You cant plan ahead, you have no schedule, and there is nothing to drive towards. The big thing is trying to keep busy, trying to keep fit and healthy for whenever we start back.

“It’s been challenging, but it also makes you not take for granted the things you can and cannot do.”

One of the big topics during lockdown, is how players have been keeping their fitness levels up without being at the training ground.

Greenwood says the Warriors are keeping them in touch with gym programmes.

He added: “The club have been keeping in contact with the players. They have been sending us gym programmes we can do.

“Obviously we are restricted with some of the gym equipment we have got. But it’s just about keeping fitness up, and keep on ticking over and maintain muscle.

“So that way when we come back, whenever that would be, we are ready to go again. Obviously everyone will need a bit of topical fitness, but we will be ready to go again.”
