BEN Flower won’t be taking London’s current position in Super League for granted as the Broncos stand in the way of him realising a dream.

The 25-year-old Welshman signed for the Warriors in the hope of having the opportunity to be selected to play in finals and would be in contention if Wigan win on Saturday.

“Hopefully we can do a job because it would be a dream come true to play at Wembley and that would be the pinnacle of my career so far,” said Flower.

“I’m looking forward to that and I’m really looking forward to the final if we can get past London.”

Ahead of the Rugby League World Cup at the end of the season, Flower is also excited at the prospect of playing in a pack with possibly three team mates in Gil Dudson, Rhodri Lloyd and Andy Powell.

On Andy’s switch from rugby union, Flower said: “I grew -up watching Andy he was a great rugby union player. It will take him a little bit of time to adapt but you can’t fault him for his effort – he is doing a great job.

“He is also a really nice bloke, down to earth and no cockyness.

“I’ll help him as much as I can and he has asked me a few times about things and he is a bit of a legend.”

Scott Taylor will be available for selection in the Challenge Cup semi final. Taylor was put on report for a shoulder charge on Saints’ Gareth O’Brien but has not been charged.

Wigan’s Super League round 27 match at home to Leeds Rhinos has been moved to Thursday September 5 at 8pm.
