NRL half-back confirms he’s signed for Wigan

Jai Field will be a Wigan Warriors player next season.

Speaking to the South Coast Register newspaper, the 23-year-old confirmed he will be heading to the DW Stadium in 2021 following his release from Parramatta Eels.

He said: “Wigan is a very prestigious club in rugby league circles and I feel honoured to get the chance to pull on their jersey.”

Renowned for his electric pace, Field has struggled to nail down a first team spot with the Eels and has made just six appearances this season.

The half-back previously played for St George Illawarra Dragons where he made 11 starts, starring in the NRL Nines that preceded his debut season in 2017.

It’s understood Field has signed a two-year deal and will likely replace one of Wigan’s outgoing playmakers.

Jackson Hastings, Bevan French and Thomas Leuluai have yet to make a decision on their futures, with Field becoming Lam’s second signing for 2021 following the return of John Bateman.
