That was some show, and if that doesn't put bums on seats, I don't know what will.

I said at the time when we first saw him linked I couldn't believe we had a chance of getting him. Hes hit the ground running and once hes settled think he will have a massive influence on us being can entertaining team to watch.
Be interesting where we play him long term. I think having him and Zak running off Hastings would be great at one and six. Though with his speed and skill he could play any position for us. His games made for SL and Wigan.

French excited for season run-in

Winger Bevan French announced himself to the Warriors faithful in a dazzling display in his side’s 46-12 win over Catalans Dragons.

The mid-season signing from Parramatta Eels ran in a hat-trick of tries and laid on two tries for teammates Zak Hardaker and Dan Sarginson in display of flair that bamboozled the French Super League side.

“It was really, really enjoyable tonight,” beamed French in his post-match interview after his three-try haul.. “I think we were pretty slow out of the blocks tonight, but it was a great test of character for us – something we can build on.

“Everyone stood up and found another level and when we’re playing in finals footy we’re going to have to dig deep coming up against some good sides – so that was an important test for us.”

French, who arrived at Wigan in late July has features mainly off the bench for Adrian Lam’s side. With free-scoring wing Liam Marshall absent with a hamstring complaint, French was named on the right-wing and the quicksilver Australian showcased his ability in a dominant display that impressed the Wigan faithful.

On his instant impact with the Wigan fans, French said: “The atmosphere that gets built-up here whenever you get the ball is pretty crazy. I really enjoy that part of the game here. I was pretty lucky enough to get in some open space, and it’s been a while since I’ve played that long and I was blowing a bit in that first half but happy to see that I’ve still got a bit of toe.”

French continued: “They’re a great bunch of blokes here. Not just the team, everyone associated with it and everyone has been really friendly since I’ve arrived in the town. They’re (Wiganers) very passionate about their footy and I’m raring to go here.” ... 6DR5uXK.99
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
