Cooper lands new Warrington deal

England international Mike Cooper has signed a new contract with Warrington.

The forward returned to his hometown club last year and has now agreed to a new deal that will see him stay with the club until 2020.

Cooper left the Wolves in 2014 to play in the NRL, where he stayed for three seasons before rejoining the Wolves in 2017.

“I’m really happy to be staying,” Cooper said.

“At this stage in my career I’m not looking to go anywhere else. I’ve been coached by Pricey before at St George and I’m enjoying working with him again.

“I’m enjoying my role within the club and the way the team is bonding with what Pricey, Hendo and Briersy have brought in. It’s a really positive place and somewhere you want to be playing at, and I have no doubt we will be winning trophies here in the future.

“We’ve never had as tight a group of players as we have now. The positivity around the camp is brilliant. We’ve created a tough steel behind the club and are going about everything in the right way.

“It’s always your dream as a kid to play for this town. I was a fan before I signed, I am still a fan now and always will be. For me the longer I can play here at Warrington the better.”

Head coach Steve Price added: “Mike’s still got a lot of good years ahead of him; the players love playing with him so it was an easy one. I was the one who got Mike over to Australia. I know what he’s about. He’s been first class. He drives good standards at training and he’s been one of our most consistent performers this season to date.”
