Wigan coach Shaun Wane is keen for his and his players’ hard work to pay off, and for them to become Super League champions this season.
The Warriors welcome the Huddersfield Giants to the DW Stadium on Thursday evening, for the first of this year’s play-off semi-finals.
“They’re big, athletic and they’ve proved this year they can burn teams,” the Wigan coach told BBC Radio Manchester.
“They’re coming to us and I’m expecting a really tough battle. They’re very well coached and they’re really going to challenge us.
“We didn’t get to the Challenge Cup final, we haven’t won the League Leaders’ Shield and I work long hours because I want to get something out of this year and that means a Grand Final win hopefully.”
