It has been announced this week that Sarginson has put pen-to-paper on a two year deal with the NRL club and will move to the Gold Coast at the end of this year.
Sarginson made the move to Wigan from London Broncos in 2014, and has appeared in World Club Challenges and Grand Finals during his time at the DW Stadium, albeit with any trophy success thus far.
“I’ve said to the club it’s nothing personal at all. If I could stay here for the rest of my career, I definitely would,” Sarginson told WiganToday.net.
“But I’m the type of person who likes change and different challenges, and going out to Australia and playing over there – and playing rugby union – they’re the sort of things that are on my bucket list, if you will.
“Now I’ve signed for Gold Coast I can hopefully tick that off and prove myself over there.
“Everyone here has been great and really taken me in. Wigan are probably the most famous rugby league club in the world so it was definitely a big decision, but one I think is right for me.”
Sarginson has said that despite the ongoing speculation regarding his future, he does not believes his performances have been affected because of it.
“Things like this don’t mess with my head,” he said.
“I’ve known for two weeks and it hasn’t affected how I’ve played. If anything, it will make me play better because we’ve not won a trophy yet and that’s my motivation.”
Sarginson has yet to collect a winners medal in his short career in rugby league so far, and says that is a record he wants to change before he departs the Warriors at the end of 2016.
“I want to end on a high,” he said.
“We’ve been underdone, been in two Grand Finals which have been good but we’ve lost them both.
“Now we’ve had an amazing start and I want to leave with a trophy. If anything, it’s made me more determined to play well here because it’s my last chance to win something with these boys.”
