Sean O’Loughlin signs new one-year extension with Wigan

Wigan Warriors have announced that Sean O’Loughlin has signed a new one-year contract in what will be his final season of his playing career.

O’Loughlin, 36, will play his 19th and ultimate season for his hometown club in 2020, having signed a new one-year deal.

The Wigan skipper has led his club to four Super League titles, two Challenge Cups and a World Cup Challenge title since being made captain in 2006.

The loose forward has also captained England and represented Great Britain and Lancashire, and has been named in the Super League Dream Team on seven occasions.

“I’m really pleased to have come to an agreement with the Club for my final season,” said O’Loughlin.

“I’ve made no secret of my desire to finish my playing career as a one-club man and I’m looking forward to pulling on the Cherry and White jersey once again this season.

“This won’t be a year-long lap of honour for me, as there’s an extremely strong and competitive Super League season on the horizon that we have to prepare for. My focus in solely on helping contribute to the team in 2020.”
