Warrington youngster Connor Wrench is eyeing up a top six finish in 2022 after signing a new three-year deal with the club.

The new deal will see him remain at the Halliwell Jones Stadium until November 2025. 

The Woolston Rovers junior came through the club’s scholarship and academy ranks.

He made his first team debut against Castleford Tigers in the opening round last year. To date, he has made 15 Super League appearances, scoring six tries. 

Connor Wrench eyeing up top six finish following new deal

Speaking on his new contract, Wrench said: “I’m buzzing to have signed a new deal.

“It’s massive for me being a Warrington lad to play for this club. It is what you dream of watching from the stands as a kid and I play now with some of the lads who I grew up watching. It’s a big thing for me and I’m happy to continue to do that in the future.

“It’s been class having Powelly [Daryl Powell]’s support. As a player you want that belief from your coach. He’s given me a run on the wing now and has been helping me adjust to that.

“Hopefully I can get more games, more tries and we’ll be in that top six come the back end of the year.”

Warrington head coach Daryl Powell added: “I’m so pleased that Connor’s agreed to stay.

“At the moment I see him getting experience on the wing but he’s going to be a class centre for this club in the future. He’s grown physically in recent months and his speed is electric.

“Once he starts to grow his confidence and knowledge as a player then he can be anything he wants. Signing this new deal now gives him the platform to go on and prove how good he can be.”
