Warrington trio pen new deals

3rd April 2019, 04:40 by Michael Holland

Warrington Wolves trio Tom Lineham, Toby King and Joe Philbin have all penned new deals with the club.

Both centre King and prop Philbin have played an important part in the club's impressive start to the new Super League season, while winger Lineham showed his quality with two tries on his return to the side against Hull FC on Friday night.

Warrington have moved quickly to tie them down to new deals and coach Steve Price believes the future is a bright one.

"It's exciting for all three to put pen to paper," Price said. "They are all young players who love being around this squad.

"We've got a fantastic playing group here and we want to secure that core squad for years to come. It's about developing an environment and culture that players want to be a part of.

"Joe is a local lad and I love everything he stands for. He's a quality person as well as player who has a big impact up front for us and there's still much more to come from Joe.

"Toby is a quality player who is happy to adapt to any position that will best help the team. He has developed as a player and is now starting to cement his place within the team.

"I thought Tom finished off the season really well last year. He's a great player to have around the club and he's certainly a character adding a positive vibe to the squad."
