Hill has eyes on Wembley for Wolves

Chris Hill’s mind is on the Challenge Cup rather than contracts as Warrington Wolves prepare for their semi-final showdown with Castleford Tigers on Saturday.

The prop was in fine fettle as the Wolves beat future coach Daryl Powell’s Tigers 38-14 in their recent Super League clash.

Seasoned international Hill doesn’t know if he will wear primrose and blue under Powell next season, by which time he will be 34.

But one thing the out-of-contract star, twice a Challenge Cup winner with Warrington, is certain of is that has no plans to retire.

Hill, who joined from Leigh in 2012, has had initial talks over a possible new deal, but is keeping an open mind.

“It’s ten years at Warrington now,” he said. “Everyone links me back to Leigh, but that’s just the way it is.

“I’m just enjoying the game at the minute and what will be will be. I’ll see what happens and not rule anything out.
”It would be nice to stay at Warrington, but it would also be nice to maybe try something different. Who knows? It’s whatever is best for me and my family.”

Hill, who scored a try as Salford were thrashed 62-18 in Super League on Thursday, is happy with his own form, and added:

“The old boy has got a bit left in him yet.

“It’s my testimonial year and I just want to enjoy it on and off the field.”

Warrington could be without Greg Inglis for two months after the legendary Australian tore a hamstring in only his third appearance for the club against Huddersfield.

Meanwhile, the Wolves have agreed a new contract with centre Toby King until the end of 2025.
