Jake Mamo rewarded with contract extension at Warrington

Warrington have handed a two-year contract extension to utility back Jake Mamo.

Mamo, 24, joined the Wolves from Huddersfield in the off-season and has scored three tries in six appearances for the club.

He said: “I’m really happy to have signed a new deal pretty early on in the season. I think there is sometimes a bit of pressure, when you’ve only got a one-year contract, to perform well. I’ve had a few games now, in a few different positions, filling in where the team needs me and I’m grateful to Pricey for having given me that chance; and to have signed me up for a couple more years too.

“The playing squad here has made the transition very easy. We are performing well at the moment, I hope that continues and I can play my part in that.”

Mamo is now committed to the Wolves until November 2021, and his deal follows hot on the heels of new contracts for Tom Lineham, Toby King and Joe Philbin.

Coach Steve Price said: “It shows what a good culture we have developed here at Warrington, that players are keen to commit to the club and want to be a part of this playing squad.

“Jake (Mamo) has shown that he can add some energy and a spark on the edge. He has slotted into the squad well and brings a lot of enthusiasm into training and out on the field. He can play in a number of different positions which makes him a great asset to the side.”
