Bevan French’s future finally confirmed after tug of war between Wigan Warriors and Newcastle Knights

Bevan French’s future has been confirmed.

The fullback/winger has been at the DW Stadium since midway through 2019 and has been one of the best recent signings in Super League history.

A try scoring freak, he had a brilliant year in 2020 becoming the 186th player to be named in the Dream Team.

In 2021, he was struck by injury as was Jai Field as the Warriors struggled to capture the attacking prowess we’ve seen from the Warriors in 2022 with both men fit.

There were fears that he would not return in 2022 especially after the tragic passing of his mother but he returned to play a key role in their Challenge Cup Final win this year with a lovely try.

He has now gone on to win the top try scorer award with over 30 Super League tries despite missing the start of the season which stirred up interest from the NRL as he and Field devastated teams.

Reports down under suggested that Newcastle Knights had tied him to a deal for next year but the Warriors pushed the boat out to keep him in Super League signing him to a two year deal with an option for a further two years in a master stroke from the club.
