Canberra confirm signing of Wigan prop Ryan Sutton on two-year deal

NRL side Canberra have announced the signing of Wigan Warriors forward Ryan Sutton on a two-year deal commencing in the 2019 season.

The 22-year-old had been widely linked with a move to the NRL when his Warriors contract expired at the end of this season, and he has now agreed a deal to join Ricky Stuart’s side.

“Ryan is a tremendous young talent who I know was looking for an opportunity to test himself in the NRL and we’re thrilled to have been able to get him into our squad for the next two seasons,” Canberra recruitment chief Peter Mulholland said. “He’s been in tremendous form for Wigan this season and we’re looking forward to him having a big pre-season with the Raiders and making the move into the NRL.
