Wolves 10 sign new deals

Adrian Morley, Lee Briers and Brett Hodgson are among 10 players to sign new contracts at Warrington.

Morley, 35, has agreed a one-year contract extension, along with Briers, hooker Micky Higham and back-rower James Laithwaite, currently on loan at Hull KR.

Full-back Hodgson, and academy products Brad Dwyer and Mike Cooper have signed new two-year deals.

Second-rower Ben Westwood and half-back Gareth O’Brien will stay at the Halliwell Jones Stadium until the end of 2015, while Chris Hill has penned a four-year extension.

Coach Tony Smith said: “It’s great we’re keeping players who are doing a fine job for us and helping this club advance.

“I’m big on stability in the camp within a club and we’ve got plenty of talent and experience so the blend is a good one.

“I’m confident it’s going to continue to be one of our strengths as we maintain that stability and keep the momentum moving forward at the club for the future.

“Each one of these players is a talent in their own right and has experience that they bring to the squad. The blend’s working well for us presently and I’ve got no doubt it will continue to work for us in the future.”

The news comes as a timely boost for the Challenge Cup finalists, who face Wigan on Saturday in a match which will potentially decide the destination of the league leaders shield, which the Wolves won last year.
