Wigan Warriors youngster makes huge statement about his future

For all the star names on the pitch yesterday as Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors collided in the Challenge Cup, it was a star of the future who proved crucial and levelled the scores.

Junior Nsemba, in the side as Wigan deal with a number of injuries in the pack, came off the bench and scored a lovely try to level the game at 14-all as Wigan completed the comeback.

Speaking on BBC after the game, the young and very tall forward opened up on the moment:

“It was really special because I knew I had the fans right there. It means so much because I love this club.”

He also expressed how much it would mean to his family:

“My mum couldn’t make it today but she was able to watch it online so I am sure she’s celebrating at home.”

Lastly he made a huge statement about wanting the number 11 shirt:

“I want to play more games, I want to start some games. I want the number 11 shirt. I am working with Willie Isa but I want to take him over.

“It is about competing and Willie has taught me a lot of things, he’s a great role model.”
