Joe Burgess: 'It's good to be back playing for Wigan Warriors'

Joe Burgess says that it is "good to be back" playing for Wigan Warriors following his recent two-month injury layoff.

Wigan Warriors' Joe Burgess has targeted more tries as the Super League season draws to a close.

The 19-year-old, who replaced Dom Manfredi for the game against Leeds Rhinos following a recent two-month injury layoff, has now scored three tries in his last two games.

"It's good to be back. It wasn't a good thing that Dom got injured but these things happen and I took my chance and got back in," Burgess told the club's official website.

"I had a couple of games for the 19s but I was struggling to be honest and felt like I was carrying my leg a little, it felt OK in the Leeds game though.

"It's good to get back on the scoresheet and hopefully I can keep that up until the end of the season."

Burgess is the Warriors' leading try-scorer this season.
