Wigan Warriors agreed a new contract with French international Morgan Escaré that will see him stay with the club until at least the end of the 2020 season.
A utility-back known for his electric pace, Escaré signed for Wigan from Catalans Dragons ahead of the 2017 season and has been in sensational form playing in all ten games so far this season including the World Club Challenge win over Cronulla.
The 24-year-old, capped eight times for France, is Wigan’s leading points scorer so far this season with 69 to his name, scoring three tries, 28 goals and one drop-goal.
Warriors Head Coach, Shaun Wane, said: “Morgan is great to work with and the best thing is I don’t think we’ve even scratched the surface with him yet. He’s a talented player but there is so much more to come from him.
“He’s fitted right in at Wigan and we’re delighted that he’s going to stay here.”
Escaré added: “I am really happy here at Wigan and feel at home. The fans, players and coaching staff have been great with me and I am really enjoying it here.
“I’m enjoying my rugby too and am happy with the way I am playing. It’s great to have this new contract agreed and I am excited for the future.”
The new contract will see Escaré stay with Wigan until the end of 2020, with an option for 2021 in the club’s favour.
