Sutton: Last season’s involvement was a shock

Wigan prop Ryan Sutton admitted he didn’t expect to get as much game-time as he did last season.

The prop played a key role for the Warriors last year, missing just the one match. At the age of 21 Sutton has already tasted Grand Final success.

“I probably had a better season than what I thought,” he said.

“I didn’t expect to play as many games as I did.”

Sutton will be looking to earn his first appearance in 2017 this weekend against Leigh for Micky Mcllorum’s testimonial and he believes the game will be as intense as ever.

The Centurions earned promotion to Super League last year, winning six of their seven games in the Middle 8s.

“There’s always a big intensity against Leigh,” he told Love Rugby League.

“I don’t think we’ve had one easy game against them.

“It’s always a big game however you look at it.”

After Leigh, the Warriors continue their pre-season preparations by heading off to the south of France to face Catalans. That will be another good test for the Warriors, according to Sutton.

“They both have a lot of experience in their sides,” he said.

“They have got some ex-NRL players and look like they’ll gel well together this year.

“We are going to be up against it but it’s all about progressing.”
