Ganson released by Wigan

21-year-old hooker Josh Ganson has been released from the last year of his contract by Wigan Warriors meaning he can now join a new club with immediate effect.

Despite the departure of Michael McIlorum from the club, which some thought would mean a promotion for Ganson within the squad, the hooker has failed to maintain a spot in the team in his time at the DW Stadium.

The former captain of England academy made seven Super League appearances for the club. He has also spent time with Swinton Lions and London Skolars.
