Wane believes that having players away with England has in the past affected how his team have started the season, and he plans to manage it better this time.
“They’re having more time than they have in the past,” he told Wigan Today.
“I’m not really going to drive them hard early on, we’re letting them have a few weeks off and come in when they’re ready.
“Obviously they’ll do their own thing and keep ticking over, like all the lads do on their break, but they’ll only come back in on January 2 and I’m not sure if they’ll play in the friendlies yet.
“Hopefully, once they’ve had a decent rest, we’ll get the best of them a few weeks into the new season.”
