Jackson Hastings has quashed any speculation that he won’t be joining Wigan Warriors after ending his apparent silence on the subject.

Reports last week suggested that the reigning Steve Prescott Man of Steel was having second thoughts about joining the Warriors.

The 23-year-old has now taken to Instagram to put all the rumours to the bed. He added a photo of Wigan’s squad numbers for 2020 to his story with the comment – “31 again for 2020! Lesgoo.”

The 31 refers to his squad number that he also wore during his time at Salford Red Devils.

This announcement from Hastings will come as some relief to some supporters who were unhappy that he didn’t seem committed to the cause.

Warriors coach Adrian Lam was not of the same belief, as he said last week he fully expected the Australian to report to training on his agreed date.
