Wigan sign Pettybourne

Wigan have signed Kiwi-born forward Eddy Pettybourne from NRL side Wests Tigers.

Pettybourne, 25, will join on a two-year contract for seasons 2014 and 2015 and he is excited about the move.

He said, “I’m really looking forward to this new challenge with Wigan. I just feel the time is right now as I have always been interested in playing overseas and I feel I have plenty to offer.

“I have spoken to Shaun Wane and have been extremely impressed in what he has had to say. It’s very exciting and I am looking forward to joining Wigan but at the same time I will be focused on doing my very best for the Wests Tigers for the remainder of this season.”

Pettybourne has played nearly 100 games in the NRL having joined Wests after five years with South Sydney between 2007 and 2012, where he worked with former Warriors coach Michael Maguire.
