Wigan Warriors’ Zak Hardaker has given an update about the end of the season following England’s 30-10 victory over France at the weekend.
It was the last game in the calendar for many stars, with Hardaker among those playing in the international fixture before some much-needed downtime.
The Pontefract-born fullback has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the 2021 season about where his future lies, with a move back home a few months ago fuelling the link of a move to West Yorkshire.
Though nothing further has been said, Wigan chairman Ian Lenagan stated that Hardaker had been free to search for another club, but was given a deadline to do so – only to come up short of a deal.
That has left Hardaker seemingly having to commute to the DW Stadium throughout the week as he lives in Pontefract.
However, following a good season with Wigan, the 30-year-old was called up to Shaun Wane’s England squad for the international fixture against France, where Hardaker put in a shift.
He has now since taken to Instagram to sign off for the next few weeks: “Had great few weeks in camp with the boys. Always special representing your country 🏴 Thank you to everyone involved 🙌 now for a few weeks off and hopefully abit of ☀️”
