Co-founder Dr. Phil Cooper MBE and Anne Griffin were present to see the new training tops with the State of Mind logo and and donated tee shirts for the squad warm up during the Challenge Cup ties this season.

The new-look squad will cross the Pennines full of optimism after a gruelling pre-season that started with trials in November and saw the departure of some established names.

Head coach Armani Sharrock’s players also face London Broncos away and St Helens at home in the group stages of the Cup as they bid to qualify for the quarter finals.

For Armani, who took over the reins from Lee Westwood in September, the challenge is for her team to follow the processes put in place through the winter.

She also sees this season as the one where the Wolves could close the gap on the likes of St Helens, Leeds Rhinos and York Valkyrie.

The former Wire skipper said: “We want to be more competitive this year. During pre-season we have looked at our standards and behaviour and the way we conduct ourselves.

“Now it’s up to the girls to play rugby and get closer to that top three.”

The Scottish-born forward – who moved to Wigan when she was nine – has expressed her delight at the way pre-season has gone.

She said: “I’m really happy that we have achieved everything we set out to do in pre-season, looking at core skills and re-evaluating our attack and defence.

State of Mind Sport would like to wish the Wolves all the best for the new season and thanks you for your support
