Wigan coach Matty Peet expects even more from full back Jai Field after his hat-trick helped his side to a 36-6 victory over Wakefield to set up a mouthwatering Challenge Cup semi-final showdown with holders St Helens.
Field, the front runner for Man of Steel after scoring nine tries in seven rounds of Super League, opened and closed the scoring in the quarter-final at Belle Vue as he completed a second treble of the season.
The 24-year-old Australian pledged his future to the Warriors by signing a new two-year contract in the week and Peet says he expects him to get even better in that time.

‘Obviously his pace makes him a stand out but he’s an intelligent player,’ Peet said.
