Warrington have announced their squad numbers for the 2023 Super League campaign, leaving the seven shirt vacant. 

The club have been linked with Catalans half-back Josh Drinkwater for next season. The Australian half-back has been told by the Dragons that he is free to leave the French outfit.

In the biggest change, Stefan Ratchford has received the number four shirt for the upcoming campaign under head coach Daryl Powell.

James Harrison has been promoted to shirt number eight, replacing Joe Philbin, who will wear shirt number 15. Josh Thewlis has been rewarded with number two, and Matty Nicholson shirt number 12.

NRL recruit Paul Vaughan has received shirt number 10, with Josh McGuire given 13 following the departure of captain Jack Hughes.

Sam Kasiano (14) and Gil Dudson (17) have also been recruited by the Halliwell Jones Stadium side for the 2023 campaign. 

Ellis Longstaff, who spent the end of last season on loan at Hull, has shirt number 33.
