Tommy Leuluai signs new Wigan deal

Tommy Leuluai has signed a new one-year deal to remain with Wigan for the 2021 season.

The 35-year-old half-back initially joined the Warriors ahead of the 2007 campaign and, having headed back to his native New Zealand in 2013, returned for a second stint in 2017.“I’m really happy to be here and to be going around again,” said the World Cup winner, who has played 302 games and won seven major honours with the club.

“My body is feeling good. I still have that drive, hunger and desire to do it.

“The main thing for me is knowing I can go out there and perform. I’m still enjoying it – knowing I can still compete and contribute to the team.”

Leuluai last month collected his third League Leaders’ Shield medal after helping Wigan secure top spot in Super League.

Warriors executive director Kris Radlinski said: “Every player has their own motivations. For Thomas, it’s about earning the respect of his team-mates, and they have it in abundance.

“His desire to play rugby, win and improve is still as strong as it ever was. Every left-side attack in the league knows that when they are playing against him, it’s going to be a tough day.”
