Wigan Warriors v Huddersfield Giants July 11, 2021 2:30 p.m. LIVE “It’s been tough times and it’s been tough school, I’m not going to lie,” Powell said. “We really enjoyed our academic days and our spare days, and then the step to full-time training seemed like a huge leap.” It may have taken a year or a year and a half of training to keep up with the pace, but that’s how it should be. “It’s a great club and when you enter the academy, the standards are etched into you and it’s the same from the academy to the first team.” It’s just a case of getting to ground zero and when you get up quickly, it’s trying to find your first hit and start from there. “I’ve played with people in the academy who have been more talented than me and have continued to do different things due to the lack of position.
