Brett Finch looking forward to being among the best of the best
Wigan Warriors stand-off Brett Finch canâ€™t wait to get into camp with his fellow Exiles next week. The Australian is a key part of Daniel Andersonâ€™s squad which represents the cream of the overseas players currently playing Super League.
Anderson paid Finch a big compliment when announcing his squad on Monday at Langtree Park. He said â€śGood half backs in Super League are like henâ€™s teeth, theyâ€™re very rare and thatâ€™s why Brett Finch stands outâ€ť.
Finch was obviously delighted with that, he said: â€śThatâ€™s great to hear. Obviously Daniel is a top coach and his track record in Super League is great. He produced top results with Saints and has a great reputation over here. I know heâ€™s looking forward to working with the squad and Iâ€™m looking forward with him for sureâ€ť.
With the great success Finch has this season behind Wiganâ€™s pack heâ€™s looking forward to working with another quality set of forwards â€śI had a quick look at the squad on Wednesday and itâ€™s a very good squad. Itâ€™s always good to be playing at the top level, so to have more top players around me is something Iâ€™m really looking forward to next weekâ€ť.
The former New South Wales State of Origin star believes the Exiles have a great chance of winning but thinks England will be better this year.
â€śI think England will have improved. Just looking at the strength in depth they have now with the England Knights squad backing them up makes it a great set-upâ€ť.
Finch doesnâ€™t believe heâ€™ll come in for any particularly special treatment from his Wigan colleagues on the England team though. â€śItâ€™s great to be playing England and lining up against a few of the Wigan boys but I think Jeff Lima might be in for a tougher time than meâ€ť he added.
