Wigan coach Wane ponders Hardaker lifeline

22 febbraio 2018 14:58

Zak Hardaker may be handed a Super League lifeline by Wigan Warriors after head coach Shaun Wane admitted his interest in the sacked Castleford Tigers full-back.

England international Hardaker left the Tigers on Wednesday, four months after it was confirmed he missed their Grand Final defeat to Leeds Rhinos due to a failed drugs test.

The 26-year-old has yet to learn what punishment he will face from UK Anti-doping.

Wigan have emerged as potential candidates to offer a fresh chance to Hardaker, but Wane – while admiring his qualities – is unaware if a deal is in place.

"He's a fantastic player, Zak. Any player that comes up of his calibre we'd be interested in," said Wane.

"But I've not heard anything at all – I don't look after that, it's down to [owner] Ian [Lenagan] and [general manager] Rads [Kris Radlinski]. I admire him a lot, but I like a lot of players in Super League and the NRL.

"He's a natural rugby player and can play anywhere – like John Bateman. He's a great player but there's many others, not all of them available.

"To me he's just a player, if someone like him becomes available we'll always be interested in that."
