Wigan Warriors (13/2 Grand Final Winner) confirmed the return of Iain Thornley last month and the outside back has revealed a desire to win silverware at the DW Stadium in 2022.

The 30-year-old started his senior career with his hometown club and he helped them to win the Super League and Challenge Cup before moving on.

He signed for Hull KR in 2016 and he went on to enjoy spells with Catalans Dragons and Leigh Centurions prior to re-signing for Wigan in November.

Wigan (7/1 Regular Season Winner) announced Thornley’s signing on a two-year deal alongside the arrival of prop forward Ramo Silva as the Matt Peet era gets underway.

The Lancashire outfit ended last season in fourth – their lowest finish since they settled for sixth in 2017 – and they were well below the standard set in 2020 when winning the League Leaders’ Shield and losing in the Grand Final.

Thornley claims he always had the ambition to return to Wigan and has vowed to give his all in the pursuit of silverware.

“I came up supporting Wigan Warriors, came through the system and did about three-and-a-half years with the club,” Thornley told Sky Sports.

“We had some good times, so for me to come back and potentially finish my career here, and hopefully come back to a winning team, playing in big games, really means a lot to me.

“My family and friends are all Wigan fans, so it’s really embedded in there, supporting the club.

“If we can do something special like the last time I was here, I’ll be made up and I’ll be doing my best to be part of that.”

Wigan are set to get their 2022 Betfred Super League campaign underway with a trip to one of Thornley’s former clubs, Hull KR, on February 11 (Match Betting – Hull KR 11/8, Draw 22/1, Wigan Warriors 4/7).
