Warriors new boy raring to go

1st December 2018, 12:09 by Jack Ogalbe

Half-back Jarrod Sammut says he is ready to embrace the "massive opportunity" at new club Wigan Warriors.

The 31-year-old was part of the London Broncos team that won promotion to the Super League through the Million Pound Game, but he decided against signing a new contract and has been snapped up by the Warriors on a two-year deal.

Sammut has previous Super League experience with Crusaders, Bradford Bulls and Wakefield Trinity, having played in the NRL at Penrith Panthers.

Wigan head coach Adrian Lam says he is expecting the Australian to "produce a little bit of magic" during his time at the DW Stadium, while the player himself is desperate to make the most of a move that to some observers has come somewhat out of the blue.

"It's a massive opportunity for myself to play for one of the biggest clubs in Super League," he told the club's website. "I'm really excited to get stuck in and play my part.

"The whole environment at the club is something that will help me progress my game even further and I hope I can bring a different style of rugby and attacking flair to the team as I've been around the game for quite some time. I'm looking forward to putting on the cherry and white jersey."
