Bevan French: Fans react as the Wigan Warriors fullback arrives back in England
On Monday evening, the fullback posted a picture on his Instagram story of himself and teammate Willie Isa at Robin Park Arena.
The 26-year-old returned to Australia last year to recover from a season-ending injury, but was granted compassionate leave by the club to remain there longer.
He was due back to Wigan last week, but tested positive for Covid-19 upon his arrival to the airport.
Fans were pleased to see him back at Robin Park, and went to social media to share their delight.
One person wrote: "Great news and a nice problem to have for the coaches when he is ready to return."
Another added: "Great to see you back Bevan."
With a third stating: "Bevan French is back on Wigan soil. DAY MADE!"
Isa also shared the post on Instagram to welcome his teammate back.
