Wigan Warriors boss Matt Peet confirmed his intentions to re-sign Abbas Miski to a new contract beyond the current Super League campaign. 

There is an option in his current contract for a further 12-months.

Miski, 27, crossed twice in the side’s 22-6 win over Huddersfield at the DW Stadium on Friday night, joined on the scoresheet by Jai Field and Liam Marshall in the Round 17 victory.

It takes the his total tally to 10 tries in Super League for the season, having not missed a game since given his first chance against Leigh Leopards in Round Seven.

The Lebanon international was also a try-scorer in the side’s 14-12 Challenge Cup quarter-final victory over Warrington Wolves.

Having made his debut with Manly Sea Eagles in the NRL in 2019, Miski initially made the move to England with London Broncos for 2021 before linking up with Wigan on a two-year deal, with the option for 2024.

Matt Peet on Abbas Miski future

“I thought he was our man of the match tonight,” Peet said.

“Out of yardage he was excellent, gets his tries and I thought defensively he was very good.

“He’s a pleasure to coach at the moment.

“I’d really like him to stay at Wigan. I’d love him to be here longer than this year.”

Miski has previously expressed his desire of remaining at the DW Stadium beyond the current campaign, having crossed for nine tries in nine appearances in his debut year.

“Me and Matty [Peet] have been having a lot of conversations,” Miski previously told Love Rugby League.

“We’ve had a lot over the years as well about what the club needs from me, what he needs from me and what the team needs from me.

“Obviously that would be my goal, to play as well as I can, help the team go as far as we can and activate that option.”
