Warrington Wolves are set for a major rebuild – that much is very clear.
Head coach Daryl Powell has been given major backing by the club’s hierarchy to completely refresh the Wolves with as many as TEN signings expected through the doors at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
That, of course, means that more exits will be likely with the likes of Mike Cooper and Josh Charnley – stalwarts of the Warrington club – already confirmed to be leaving.
Now, for others that are out of contract such as Robbie Mulhern and Jack Hughes, the future is less clear.
Hughes is club captain but is currently sat out injured, but has played almost 150 games for the Wolves since making the move from Wigan Warriors back in 2016.
The 30-year-old hails from Wigan and spent five seasons at his hometown club, but enjoyed four different loans with his last at the Huddersfield Giants in 2015 paving the way for his full exit from the DW Stadium.
Since then, Hughes has become one of Warrington’s most consistent performers but with Powell wanting to refresh his side, could he be the next to go?
There would surely be no shortage of Super League sides wanting to etch his signature onto a contract given his experience and durability in the back-row, and, the fact that he is English would mean he wouldn’t count on any quota.
