Williams one of three Wolves to sign new deals

Warrington winger Rhys Williams is one of three players to agree new contracts at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Williams, 22, has signed a two-year deal after making nine first team appearances for the Wolves in 2012, and also spending some time on loan with Super League counterparts Castleford.

Winger Gene Ormsby and back-rower Gavin Bennion, both yet to make a first team appearance, have both committed to the club until the end of 2015.

Williams said: “I’m thrilled to have signed again. I’ve been at the club for a fair few years now so am happy to extend my stay.

“I’m just looking to play as much as I can and get as many games under my belt as possible. Competition is strong for every position at Warrington which certainly makes everyone train hard and is probably why the club has been so strong; everyone’s fighting for places one to 13.

“It’s also great to see a few more young players sign-up again. I think they’ll start to come through and we’ll see a lot more debuts next year, which can only be good for the club.”

The Wales international is a product of the Wolves youth system and played in the Valvoline Cup Grand Final win over Leeds in September.

The 2013 season is likely to culminate in Williams representing Wales in the World Cup, while Bennion has also had some international recognition last season – playing for England Academy on their tour of Australia in August.
