Wigan Warriors make unprecedented move as a Super League club for their fans

It’s been all about culture since Matty Peet took over at Wigan Warriors at the end of 2021.

2021 was a disappointing season for Wigan; having reached the Super League Grand Final in 2020 – only to narrowly lose to rivals St Helens – the Warriors slipped down the pecking order in the league and exiting the play-offs at the first time of asking.

Since then, a big rebuild has got underway with Matty Peet taking over as head coach and Lee Briers and Sean O’Loughlin as his assistants.

Shaun Wane is also back at the DW Stadium in a leadership role, combined with his England head coaching duties.

The club brought in the likes of Patrick Mago, Kaide Ellis, Iain Thornley and Cade Cust whilst also ensuring those such as Jai Field and Bevan French had recovered adequately for the 2022 campaign.

With the aim to build more connections with the Wigan town and the supporters of the club, the Warriors held an open training session for their fans to come down and watch at the Robin Park Arena today.

It gave supporters the chance to watch the Wigan players away from game day as well as fraternise with their beloved stars after training had been completed.

The club really is doing special things off the field in a bid to represent the town and the on field product is slowly but surely developing as well.
