MATTY Bowen is champing at the bit at the prospect of playing his first game for Wigan.

The jet-heeled No.1 has been included in Shaun Wane’s squad for Friday’s friendly test at St Helens.

Wane plans to roll out the big-guns in the champions’ final pre-season match.

And that will give Bowen, 31, a chance to showcase his skills before they begin their Super League defence the following week, at home to Huddersfield.

He said: “I can’t wait. I’m jumping out of my skin.

“It’s like my first-grade debut again only I’m a little older and in a different jersey!

“The fans have been great since I’ve been here, stopping and wishing me well. Hopefully I won’t disappoint them, I just want to play some good footy.”
