Briers signs new Warrington deal

Lee Briers has ended speculation over his future by signing a new one-year deal at Warrington.

Briers has been heavily linked to a move to Championship club Barrow, but will now stay at the Wolves for a 14th season.

The Wolves have also signed up forwards Vinnie Anderson and Mike Cooper for the 2010 season.

Kiwi Anderson will continue to play alongside brother Louis at the club next season, having joined from St Helens at the start of 2007.

Prop Cooper is a local born player who has progressed through the youth system.

Boss Tony Smith said: “Lee and I have a good working relationship and we understand what we require from one another. We work happily together and have formed a good partnership so far. Lee is certainly one of the brightest Rugby League talents in the game and I look forward to continuing to work with him next season and helping him progress even further.

“Vinnie also brings a wealth of experience to the team having had success in both the international and domestic game. He is able to give the young players an insight into this, stepping up into some areas of leadership, making Vinnie an important part of the team both on and off the field.

“For a young guy Mike has been around the first team for quite a long time. He continues to improve and is set to establish himself as a regular first team player of the future. I am delighted that he is from Warrington and I look forward to helping this local talent to progress in his game.”
