Warrington star Bryson Goodwin said all the pressure is on Wigan ahead of Saturday’s Grand Final.
The Wolves face the Warriors in the 2018 Super League Grand Final on Saturday, October 13 (6pm).
Warrington were underdogs against the St Helens last week and they are the underdogs again this week, but Goodwin says the team aren’t fazed by the tag.
“Us being underdogs doesn’t bother us, it just means there is no pressure on us,” he told loverugbyleague.com.
“I don’t think anyone gave us a chance at all last week to win and we won that game. No-one is giving us a chance to win this week either, but hopefully we can prove them all wrong.
“I’ve been lucky enough to have played at Old Trafford before (for New Zealand). It is a very special stadium because there is a lot of history to it and I’m looking forward to stepping out there again.
“Winning the Grand Final would mean a lot for myself personally and for my family. It will be a big reward as we had to move over to the other side of the world and it would sort of be like it’s all been worth it, but it would be great for the fans and everyone at the club for all the hard work and effort they have put in. There is a lot we have to do though and we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves.”
Goodwin joined the Wolves from South Sydney Rabbitohs ahead of the 2018 season, and he revealed that he is enjoying life in England and is not feeling homesick.
“I have loved being over here in England so far,” he added.
“It’s just a different lifestyle. It is good to change it up after living in Australia for so long. Me and my family have got to experience a bit of Europe, the kids are loving it and so is my wife. I’m really happy here and I can’t say enough good things about the club, they’ve been really helpful. We are settled here and the club have been great since day one.
“The atmosphere over here is great too. It is different to games over in Australia, sometimes the amounts of fans at games isn’t as much but it is definitely louder over here.
“The fans are passionate back home and the fans are very passionate here, I love all the support we are getting from the Warrington fans.”
