Wigan Warriors’ Kai Pearce-Paul sends out ominous message

Kai Pearce-Paul has earned a reputation for himself as one of the most exciting back-rowers in world rugby league in recent seasons.

After bursting onto the scene in a struggling Wigan Warriors outfit in 2021, disaster struck earlier this season when he was ruled out for several months  with torn ligaments.

The rangy back-rower/centre was taken from the field in Wigan’s 20-0 win over the Salford Red Devils back in March with head coach Matt Peet confirming the awful injury back then.

“He’s torn some ligaments, scans have confirmed that but at the moment we’re looking at a few months. It’s unfortunate but it’s part of the game,” Peet said.

With that in mind, however, Pearce-Paul has posted an update on his Instagram profile, looking in incredible shape and sending out an ominous message to Super League rivals.

On a side note, Pearce-Paul’s future continues to be up in the air after a reputable Newcastle Herald journalist Barry Toohey reported that a deal has been done for 2024, but the NRL side wants the Wigan man for 2023.

The Daily Telegraph previously reported that Sam Ayoub – often hailed as the world’s most powerful agent – linked up with Peace-Paul’s manager, Iestyn Harris, in order to handle negotiations with NRL sides.

After bursting onto the scene with the London Broncos, Peace-Paul impressed enough to be given a long-term deal by Wigan.

Debuting in 2021, the rangy back-rower or centre looked comfortable at the highest level with a wicked offload and a physicality that makes him difficult to tackle.

His form in 2022 was even more impressive before injury and Pearce-Paul was rewarded with a spot in Shaun Wane’s 30-man England squad.

It would be a major loss for Super League if the youngster makes the move to the NRL so soon.
