Pomeroy joins Wolves until end of season

Warrington have confirmed the signing of centre Ben Pomeroy until the end of the current season.

The 33-year-old joins from French side Lezignan Sangliers. He has previously represented Penrith Panthers and Cronulla Sharks in the NRL since making his professional debut in 2004.

Pomeroy has experienced the Super League competition spending two seasons with Catalan in 2014 and 2015.

He said: “I’ve been playing in the French competition, but I was always keen to play in Super League again.

“This opportunity at Warrington came up and I think is perfect for me. I’m excited – it feels like I’m making my debut again.

“I’ve still got a lot of friends over here in the Dragons team and have kept an eye on Super League. I can’t wait to play and I’m hoping I can do a good job for the club and slot into the system here.”

Wolves’ boss Tony Smith added: “I’m looking forward to working with Ben. He’s an experienced player who has done well throughout his career. He’s a whole-hearted player and puts his body on the line.

“He’s no-nonsense and experienced – a good solid rugby league player who will certainly help our cause.

“His experience and communication of that experience on the field – as well as leadership on the field – is very important to us in a position that we’ve struggled with throughout the season through injury having lost a number of players in the centre position.

“He’ll certainly come in and do a strong job for us. He’s someone I’m looking forward to working with and I know the players are too.”
