Romain Navarrete says Wigan have not put an emphasis on stretching their home run – they want to win every game they play!

The Warriors are unbeaten in five matches at the DW Stadium this year, and also won the ‘home’ game against Hull FC which they took to Australia.

They face Salford tomorrow night before at least a month on the road.

And asked whether they had spoken about maintaining their form at the DW, Navarrete said: “We don’t speak about not losing a home game, we just speak about not losing.

“We want to win every game, we treat every one like a final.

“We want the Challenge Cup, the title, and to do that we want to win every game.”

The French prop has started three matches, having worked his way into the side with impressive displays for the reserves.

And with the big-guns back in Shaun Wane’s squad - John Bateman, Ben Flower and Sam Tomkins return, with Liam Farrell set to follow - Navarrete is determined to make the most of his opportunities.

The 23-year-old said: “Some props you want on the bench for the impact, when they are fresh.

“But for me, it’s always a pleasure to start a game.

“It’s like a promotion and, when Shaun told me, it gave me confidence.

“He told me he was happy with my form. I still have points to work on, but I know the standard now, I know how Shaun wants me to play.”

The former Catalans forward recently signed a new three year deal with Wigan.
