Hughes and Hill to share captaincy at Warrington

Hughes and Hill to share captaincy at Warrington

Former Wigan Warriors and Huddersfield Giants forward Jack Hughes, who led England Knights on their tour to Papua New Guinea last October, has been made dual captain of Warrington Wolves for 2019.

Hughes will share the role with Chris Hill, the Wolves’ skipper for the last three years, with Kevin Brown retaining his position as vice-captain.

Warrington head coach Steve Price said: “We feel it’s our best fit going forward.

“With Chris not playing a full 80 minutes, and Kev being the current vice-captain and doing a really good job looking after all our attacking structures, I felt that we needed a player who could support Chris in that role.

“As a stand-out performer in our pre-season, epitomising our standards and what we are trying to drive here at the club, there’s no better person than Jack Hughes to complement Chris and Kev.”
