Tony Clubb extends Wigan stay

Wigan forward Tony Clubb has signed a new two-year deal with the club. 

The 31-year-old’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the season, but will now remain at the DW Stadium until the end of 2021.

Clubb joined the Warriors back in 2014 from London and this season became part of Wigan’s leadership group alongside captain Sean O’Loughlin and senior players Liam Farrell and Tommy Leuluai.

Warriors executive director Kris Radlinski commented: “Tony is a key member of our group and has the highest respect from his peers in the squad.

“He is one of our leaders and on and off the field, sets standards for others to follow and he remains one of the competition’s fiercest and toughest front-rowers. We’re happy to see him extend his stay with Wigan Warriors.”

Clubb added: “It was a no-brainer and I’m really excited to stay with Wigan for another two years.

“After being here for five years, I’d like to call it my home. Me and my family have decided we are going to stay here in Wigan after I’ve finished rugby, as it is a great place to raise our kids.

“Hopefully, over the next few years we can win more trophies and I’ve been lucky that for the five years I’ve been here we’ve played in six finals.

“It’s a special place for me and I’m extremely happy to continue my career at Wigan.”
