Briers extends Warrington stay

Warrington talisman Lee Briers will remain with the Wolves until the end of the 2012 season, the club have announced.

The £65,000 signing from 1997 will extend his Wolves association into a 15th year after penning a twelve month extension to his current contract.

After making his debut for St Helens as a teenager, Briers quickly found his feet, yet it is his time with the Wolves and his Wales international career that have defined a man that once served as understudy to Bobbie Goulding. Under the guidance of Tony Smith, Briers is the renaissance man at Warrington, as his magnificent displays in the last two Challenge Cup Finals testify.

Recently Briers has overtaken the great Brian Bevan to go second in the all time scorers list at Warrington and as he approaches a magical 350 games for the Wolves, he has amassed 126 tries, 876 goals and 65 drop-goals.
