30 seconds with...Kieran Sherratt
Over the next few weeks, we’re getting to know a few of the stars of our recent season launch video a little better. Today, our subject is Kieran Sherratt.
As the song goes, sometimes ‘you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone’ - and it’s a lyric you can definitely attribute to Kieran Sherratt.
That’s not to say his stellar contributions on the pitch in 2018 weren’t noticed, but his three-month absence through injury midway through the year certainly hit the Bears hard.
It was no coincidence that his return to the fold saw results on the field take a swing in a positive direction as he added steel and nous to the Bears’ offering.
The Wigan Warriors academy product has played for Coventry University, England students and is now ready for his third season with the Bears having firmly established himself as a fans’ favourite.
Kieran said: “Since I’ve joined the Bears, the team has really grown and rugby league in the city has really developed.
“My hope for 2019 is that we go on, win more and cause more upsets in the future.”
Kieran is part of a host of 2018’s forwards to recommit to the Bears cause for 2019, and head coach Tom Tsang is delighted to have him back for another year.
Tom said: “Kieran is now a familiar face at the Bears, as he enters his third season with the club, and has established himself as one of our best players. A threat in attack, with good footwork, strength and awareness - Kieran has made the left second-row position his own, while also having the versatility and toughness to play other positions such as loose-forward and when needed, hooker.
“He has really improved since he first joined us, not just technically, but also in terms of leadership qualities and his positive influence on the team. I think Kieran has a lot more improvement in his game and I am looking forward to seeing him kick on and have his best season to date in 2019.”
