Warrington hooker and Lance Todd Trophy winner Michael Monaghan has signed a new two-year deal with the club.
Monaghan, 30, joined the Wolves on a four-year deal from Manly in 2008 and has now committed until the end of 2013.
The Australian said: “The club’s heading in a really good direction. We had some success last year with the Challenge Cup and have another semi-final in the same competition this year. We are in a good place at the moment I think we still have some improvement left in us as a club, so it was a pretty easy decision to make to stay.”
Monaghan started his Wolves career at scrum-half, but has excelled in the hooking role since Tony Smith’s arrival at the club.
Wolves boss Smith said: “I am delighted, as is everyone at the club, that Michael has agreed to extend his contract. There is no doubt in my mind that he is one of the best if not the best hooker in the current Super League competition. He gives everything and is a definite leader in the way he plays. We are delighted that he has chosen to stay at the club despite undoubtedly have many other options.”
