Hill signs new Warrington deal

Warrington Wolves have confirmed that prop Chris Hill has signed a new five-and-a-half year deal at the club.

This secures the highly-rated forward’s future, after he was strongly linked with a move to the NRL.

Hill joined the Wolves for the 2012 season from Leigh Centurions.

“I am delighted to have signed again at Warrington,” said the forward, who is Warrington’s top tackler, metre maker and leading carrier.

“It was a tough decision for me and my family with the temptation of the NRL but the decision is right for us and I’m fully committed to the Wolves.

“I love it here at the club. With Tony staying on and Richard Agar coming in next year – who coached me at Under 18s with England – I’m looking forward to my many more years here.

“There’s a great bunch of talented players and we’re adding to it well too with the recent signing of Ashton Sims.”

Wolves coach Tony Smith was also delighted to have secured the player’s future with Warrington.

“Chris is a fantastic asset for Warrington Wolves,” said Smith.

“Since joining the club he has progressed to be one of the best British players in the game. His willingness and hunger to improve is first class.

“If there has been a better performer in Super League on a consistent basis I’ve yet to see them. Not only is Chris a great player, but he is a quality young man and a great role model for our young players.

“Due to Chris’s performances at both club and international level It comes as no surprise that there was interest from the NRL.

“To secure Chris for a further five and a half years is not only a coup for Warrington Wolves but a real boost for Super League.”
