Danny Walker: Warrington is the only place I want to be

He said: “I’m made up to have signed a new deal.

“It’s good to have that security under my belt for the next few years. Hopefully I can push on now and it will be a successful few seasons.

“It’s been really enjoyable ahead of the new season and it’s been refreshing with all the new faces coming in. There’s loads of positivity around the place. We know what we need to get better on and we’ve all bought into what Powelly [Daryl Powell] and the other coaches have introduced.
