Wigan Warriors halfback Jackson Hastings has said his recent comments around a possible NRL return were misunderstood.
His comments on Fox League brought along some criticism from Wigan fans, where he seemed to suggest he would go back to the NRL if interest was shown.
He is currently in the first year of a two-year contract at the Warriors.
Speaking to Sky Sports’ Golden Point Podcast, he says the answer he gave was misunderstood.
He told the podcast: “I wasn’t talking about next year, the year after or the year after that, it could be at any point in my life. I’ve always said I want to go back, give it another go and do things differently.
“But in saying that, if I have to play the rest of my career in Super League then so be it. It wasn’t me saying I’m leaving Wigan right now and going home, that wasn’t the answer I’m trying to portray.”
A lot of uneducated & abusive tweets being sent to me. Listen to the whole interview not the 40 seconds you’re fixated on.
Whose to say my family won’t move over & I play my career out here.
Jog on, Enjoy the sunshine and stay safe and healthy! JH ✌?
