Wigan forward Liam Farrell has said he is targeting silverware with the club in the 2022 season.

The Warriors have only won the League Leaders Shield since Shaun Wane left the club back in 2018. They will head into a new direction in 2022, with Matt Peet taking charge.

Farrell will continue to be a senior presence in the squad, with plenty of young players coming through at Wigan.

When asked what he was targeting in 2022, Farrell told Wigan TV: “Tough one! Obviously competing, 100-per-cent want to win some silverware, that’s always my main aim. I want to win, but doing something special with this squad as well.

“There’s a lot of new players. I’m interested to see how some of these younger lads go who played for us last year with some more experienced players in there like Cade (Cust), Patrick Mago as well.

“(I am also)Looking forward to seeing how the likes of Kai (Pearce-Paul) go. Kai had a really good year last year but I think he’s looking great in the off-season so I’m excited mostly about all the younger lads.”

Positive signs for Farrell

On the Warriors’ pre-season preparations, Farrell added: “Obviously a big change in the coaching staff and quite a few new players as well.

“There’s been some adapting to that, getting back in the flow of things and getting the body used to long days. Training days have been quite a bit longer than what we’re used to but they’ve been enjoyable at the same time. They’ve flown pretty well and the content and quality that we’ve got out of sessions has been great.

“There’s been times when the lads have needed to rip in and train hard, but everyone has done it tough, together. Positive signs so far.”
