Warrington Wolves are reuniting the Anderson brothers for 2008; the Club can confirm that they have signed New Zealand international and the NRL side Vodafone Warriors utility forward Louis Anderson, 21 on a two year deal. Louis will join his brother Vinnie for the Engage Super League XIII season.
After playing 13 consecutive tests since his New Zealand debut in 2004, Anderson was forced to miss the 2006 Tri-Nations after having surgery on a stress fracture in his left foot.
Louis made his first grade debut for the Warriors against Penrith Panthers in 2004 and has made 57 appearances for them playing at loose forward, second row and hooker. He has played all his career to date with New Zealand based teams; his junior club was East Coast Bays in Auckland and he then went on to sign for Taniwharau in Waikato before signing for Vodafone Warriors.
Vinnie Anderson is excited to be reunited with his brother for next season;
"It is really exciting and I can't wait to play alongside him again. We really enjoy playing together and we bring the best out of each other playing wise."
Head Coach Paul Cullen commented on his newest signing for 2008, "Louis is another major piece in the jigsaw; an international player of great quality."
Director Simon Moran commented, "Louis is a young world class back row forward, who would have been an automatic selection in the awesome New Zealand pack this autumn if fit. To get him to sign for at only 21 is a real coup for the club and Super League as a competition."
