Wigan Warriors have been boosted by the news that prop forward Tony Clubb has signed a new four-year deal with the club.
The Kent-born 27 year-old joined from London Broncos ahead of the 2014 season and has made a good impact in his first 18-months at the club, earning the praise of head coach Sean Wane.
“Tony is one of the best front-rowers in the competition and has been in fine form for Wigan this year,” said Wane.
“He’s a great bloke and his attitude is second to none. I want all the players to be hungry and to want to continually improve and Tony is exactly that kind of person. He’s made a lot of progress in his 18 months at the club and with the help of our coaching staff, he’s only going to get better.”
Clubb, who has four England caps, has played 37 times for the Warriors since making his debut against Huddersfield Giants at the start of 2014.
“It was a no-brainer for me really,” added Clubb.
“I’ve loved every second here at Wigan and my family enjoy it up here too. We’re expecting our second child any day now and are really settled in Wigan. It’s great to be part of such a good team. Wigan and Shaun Wane have done a lot for me and it’s nice to hear some of the things said about me. I just want to repay that now.
“I’m busy working hard trying to get my knee right and then I can get back out training with the lads. I’m desperate to win a trophy with Wigan and will be doing everything I can to help make it happen.”
