Ratchford signs new deal at Warrington

Warrington utilty player Stefan Ratchford has signed a new contract extension.

He should now remain at the club until the end of the 2018 campaign.

He has made 86 appearances for the Wolves in total, since joining from Salford in 2012, and has scored 39 tries, as well as kicking 96 goals and two drop goals.

Wolves head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith is delighted to have secured the player’s services, and revelaed that the 26-year-old was the subject of some NRL interest.

“To tie Stefan down for this length of time is fantastic news for the club,” said Smith.

“There’s no doubt a player of Stefan’s quality was getting attention from the NRL.

“His versatility is invaluable; in whichever position he is selected, he plays with a smile and does an outstanding job. He is a genuine match winner and can do special things.

“I’m delighted he’ll be continuing to do this in Warrington colours for many years.”

Ratchford himself believes that he has some unfinished business with the Wolves, having played in two losing Grand Finals in 2012 and 2013.

“I’m really enjoying my time at Warrington and playing in Super League,” he said.

“We have an exciting squad here at the Wolves and I can only see it getting better with the new signings joining us for next season. We have a bit of unfinished business with the Grand Final and I’d love to win more with this group of lads.

“There are quite a few of us with long-term deals and it’s great that we will all be together for the next few years; it’s fantastic to be part of.”
