Wigan Warriors prop Joe Bullock has his eyes set on silverware this season as he returns back to full fitness.

The 25-year-old, who joined the club from Barrow after originally starting his career at the Warriors, hit the ground running until an injury ended his season prematurely.

The giant forward made 23 appearances for Wigan before a knee injury against St Helens saw his season come to an abrupt end as he had to sit on the sidelines as the Warriors agonisingly missed out on a Grand Final appearance.

Bullock is now back in training and hopes he can impress coach Adrian Lam between now and the start of the season and be part of the team that will be looking to win silverware after failing to collect anything in 2019.

He told the club website: “It was a really good year. I didn’t expect to play as many games as I did so I was grateful for the opportunity and I really enjoyed my time. I knew it would be a tough challenge coming up from the Championship, as I needed to adapt to the pace and the atmosphere of Super League.”

“This year I’ve got nothing to fear and need to push forward. I want to improve again and hopefully as a team we can win some trophies.

“I just want to try and get into the team and then maintain a place – if I can achieve that then I’ll be happy. Last season I played in some real big games, so you just want to play as much as you can.

“It has been really tough, but I am happy to be back and I’m looking forward to the new year. It is nice to be back in this environment with all of the lads; we will push each other through the different set of challenges that come each day. It is hard but fun to achieve as a team.”
