Ryan Atkins not offered new Warrington contract

Ryan Atkins has confirmed he is set to leave Warrington at the end of the season after failing to secure a new contract.

The 33-year-old is currently in his 10th year at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and has made over 270 appearances for the club, scoring 164 tries.

Despite speculation circulating about his future from 2020 and beyond, the former England international insists he wants to let his rugby do the talking for the remainder of the season.

Speaking to the Warrington Guardian about a potential move away, Atkins said: “That’s something I’ll leave to my agent. My priority is to play well for Warrington. I’m contracted here for this year and the main thing is to leave with a bang.

“I just want to carry on enjoying my rugby league and everything else will look after itself. I’ve got a great agent and I’m sure he will be working behind the scenes. As long as I do my part and that’s playing well, it will make clubs want to sign me for next year.

“From the first of May, you’re allowed to talk to other clubs. I’ve not got a deal from Warrington on the table so my agent can do as he wishes now but my priority is to play the best for Warrington while I’m contracted here.”
