Jackson Hastings won’t celebrate if he scores against Salford

Wigan half-back Jackson Hastings says he will not celebrate if he scores against his old club Salford on Friday night.

The 24-year-old will face his former club Salford for the first time since leaving for Wigan on Friday night.

Hastings gained international honours for Great Britain while at the Red Devils, as well as clinching the Man of Steel award.

He said: “I’d celebrate like I always do. I’d turn around and walk back to halfway.

“There will definitely be no disrespect on my behalf. You never bite the hand that feeds you and they did more than feed me.

“It’s a huge part of my career that place and when I go back I’ll be extremely respectful of the crowd and make sure I see people that chanted my name.

“It will be emotional going back there. It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

“That 14-month period is a part of my life I’ll never forget. I’m so grateful for all that I went through.”
