Wigan’s Bevan French still in Australia as he undergoes rehab

Bevan French is still in Australia continuing his rehab.

The livewire playmaker was ruled out for the rest of the 2021 Super League season in June after suffering a severe hamstring injury and returned home for his rehabilitation.

That being said, French exercised his option to add another year to his Wigan contract, meaning he will be returning before the start of the Super League season in early February.

French said at the time: “I’m obviously upset about my injury and the duration of it, but the silver lining is that it has allowed me to re-visit home during a very difficult time for me and my family.

“I have specific goals I would like to achieve whilst at Wigan and I have yet to do those things which plays a role in my decision to take up my option.

“The club staff and squad members have also been very understanding of my situation at home which makes me want to re-pay the club and its fans the following season.”

The 25-year-old signed for the Warriors midway through the 2019 Super League season and has since scored 26 tries in 34 appearances in a bid to stake a claim for that fullback spot in front of Zak Hardaker.
