French polish for Wigan silverware

Bevan French has told Wigan fans he and his team-mates are totally committed to putting some silverware back into the club’s trophy cabinet.
The 2019 campaign spelled triple disappointment for the Warriors, who lost out to Sydney Roosters in the World Club Challenge, to Warrington in round six of the Challenge Cup and to Salford in the Super League play-offs.
But Adrian Lam’s side have started the current season strongly, and went into the lockdown leading the table on points difference from Castleford, with five wins from seven matches.
Wigan were also drawn at home to Warrington in the sixth round of the Challenge Cup, which the club last won in 2013.
Versatile Australian back French, who is in his first full season after signing from Parramatta Eels, has impressed so far in 2020, scoring four tries and creating four others.
And in a video message to the club’s supporters, the 24-year-old Indigenous All Stars representative player from Tingha, New South Wales said: “Myself and the rest of the boys can’t wait to get back out there and win some silverware at the end of the season.”
French urged fans to continue following Government guidelines during the coronavirus crisis.
“I hope everyone is doing their best to stay positive and healthy,” he said.
“It’s going to be a tough few months, but we can all help each other through.
“A lot of things have been taken away from us and we are limited in what we can do, but I believe we still have a lot to be thankful for.”
French, who made his Parramatta debut in 2016 and scored 35 tries in 47 games for the Eels, joined Wigan last July, and scored six tries in eight outings last season.
He is contracted until the end of the 2021 season.
