Wane wants Finch stay
Wigan coach Shaun Wane singled out Brett Finch for praise after the Warriors booked their place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals.
The Australian played an integral part in ending St Helens 11-year run of semi-final appearances as he scored a try and set up another as Wigan ran out 18-4 winners over their arch rivals. Finch's contract expires at the end of the season and Wane has revealed that he is keen to tie him down to a new deal. "Finchy turns up when you need him to," said Wane. "Not many players do that to Paul Wellens. "If there is a chance of hanging on to him I'd be keen to. There's lots of time left. He's enjoying his rugby and I'm enjoying watching him. "We're speaking to him and his agent. "I don't know where it's going to end up but, if I get hold of Brett Finch for next year, I'll be really happy." Leeds Rhinos booked their semi-final berth on Friday night with a 60-12 drubbing of Leigh Centurions, while the other two quarter-finals take place on Sunday with Catalans Dragons hosting Warrington and London Broncos travelling to Huddersfield.
