Jordan Turner excited for tomorrow’s game after making injury return v Wakefield last week

Jordan Turner spoke to the media ahead of Friday’s clash with Wigan Warriors at the DW Stadium, kick off 8pm.

In anticipation of Friday’s battle, the centre knows the importance of the game with the Claret and Gold currently tied with Wigan on 23 points:

“I think every game is a tough game this season. Wigan are always Wigan. It’s probably one of the hardest places to go, I’ve been there a few times and it really is a tough place to go.

“They’re in a similar situation to us, it’s do or die. They need to win just as much as us so I think it’s going to be as good as ever playing against Wigan this week.”

Turner reflected on last week’s 36-6 victory over Wakefield Trinity, his first game back since sustaining an injury in the 44-4 victory over Warrington Wolves at the start of June:

“It was a great performance by the boys to beat a team like Wakefield. This year their calibre has been really high, they’ve been in the midst of the top four for a while, so we showed exactly how we feel about the Super 8s and what we want to do. There’s no point having such a good win last week and not backing it up this week. We want to win every game.

“I was pleased to be back on the pitch on Friday night, it felt like a lifetime. It’s been a pretty frustrating year with the way I was playing before I got injured. On Friday night, I was quite quiet but I was happy with my work rate. I just did my job and I need to keep building on that each game as it goes along because I want a strong finish to the end of the season, for me personally and for the team.

The Giants put themselves back in contention for a top four spot with victory last Friday, but Turner knows how fierce the opposition is with the teams jockeying for a top four finish:

“It’s so competitive this year. Either one or two spots in the top four are still up for grabs and I think anyone that’s in the eight are saying the same thing. They want to keep winning their games till the end of the year”
