Why Escare is going to get even better
Morgan Escare has only scratched the surface of what he can do for Wigan, according to Shaun Wane.
The Warriors boss has been thrilled with the French recruit’s form – but outlined why he believes he has much more to come.
Wane wants the livewire full-back to contribute more to their attack.
He said: “Morgan is getting better every game.
“He has one good play in every set, but I want more – he’s not yet giving us two or three plays in each set. But he’s an asset, and we’re scratching the surface with him.”
Escare has played in all five of Wigan’s games, helping them win the World Club Challenge and climb top of the embryonic Super League table.
He has proved an assured goal-kicker and solid at the back, but it is with ball in hand where he has really caught the eye.
“He gives us energy, he’s got some zip, he’s competitive,” said Wane. “He’s given us a different way of playing. He’s improved from game one to now, and he will continue to improve, I’m enjoying coaching him.
“He is now speaking in meetings. His Wiganese is getting better!”
Escare signed a one-year deal after being released by Catalans. He was brought in to provide cover and competition for No.1 Sam Tomkins, who is expected to remain sidelined until next month.
