Isa: I'm staying to win trophies
Willie Isa says his decision to stay at Wigan was driven by one motivating factor '“ the chance to win more trophies.
The 2016 Grand Final was the only silverware of his decade-long career.
And, speaking after fellow-forward Romain Navarrete also committed his future to the club, Isa says it was a simple decision for him to make.
He said: “It was a big decision, because I’m 29, but it was a simple decision, too, because there’s still some hunger for me to win silverware – it came to that.
“I feel this is the best chance to achieve my dreams. I’ve won one Grand Final and it may sound greedy but I want more. We don’t last too long, rugby league players, so if I can take this opportunity with my team-mates, I think anything is possible.
“My mum was a bit disappointed, I think she wanted me home in Australia! It’s a short career and I’ll try and make the most of it.”
Wigan officials are working through their off-contract players.
Having tied down Isa – and given improved deals to wingers Tom Davies and Liam Marshall –they yesterday secured Navarrete on a new three-year contract, with an extra option in the club’s favour.
