England's Stefan Ratchford extends Wolves stay

England's Stefan Ratchford extends Wolves stay

Warrington Wolves have confirmed that England international Stefan Ratchford has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until the end of 2022.

The 31-year-old joined Warrington back in 2012 and has won the Coral Challenge Cup twice with the Wolves, most recently in 2019 with victory over St Helens. 

The full-back has represented both England Knights and England earning seven full caps with the national side, including as a part of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup squad. 

Ratchford said: “I am delighted to be staying. I love the club, the boys and everything we stand for.

“The staff and the board have all been great with me over my time so far. Being a Wiganer and signing from Salford, I didn’t know how the fans would take me having come from near rivals, but they have been brilliant with me from day one.

“Hopefully we can have more success over the next few years, and I look forward to being a part of it.”

Warrington Wolves Head Coach, Steve Price, said: “It is awesome news for our club to reach an agreement with Stef Ratchford. 

“He is one of the most professional players I have come across in the game. He is so diligent in his preparation on and off the field and is a wonderful guy to coach. I still see him getting even better. 

“It’s cracking news to have extended his stay until 2022. He’s been a really good sounding board for me and is a strong leader within our team which I expect him to continue to grow.”
