The former England international has admitted that both have settled in well, and adds that the pair will add something to an already strong squad.
“It was a big thing for the town and for Wigan for him to come back and it’s great to have a chance to play wth him week-in week-out. He’s top drawer, he’s a good player. You need players like that in your team and Sam brings something a bit different.”
“I’ve played against him a few times and he’s a great guy, pretty quiet but he’s a strong, strong boy and pretty fit too,” he said.
“He’s done well on the testing, he’s in good knick and good shape and I’m sure he’s going to fit in well.”
Clubb himself admits to working hard during pre-season, following post-season surgery on his arm.
“I had some floating bone in my arm and it would get stuck so I couldn’t bend my arm, I’ve had that sorted now so I can actually bend it,” he said.
“I played the full year with it last year, and it was starting to annoy me towards the end of the year, so I just had it cleaned out. It wasn’t too bad to play with, I don’t need to pass the ball, I’m a front-rower!” Clubb added.
