Ex-Warrington Wolves man reportedly wants new Super League challenge

There are still a number of players looking for clubs ahead of 2023 including former Warrington Wolves man Matty Russell.

The Scottish international started his career at Wigan Warriors and played for Hull FC on loan in 2012 prior to a move to Gold Coast Titans in the NRL in 2013.

After just one year down under, he joined Warrington Wolves playing at both Wembley and Old Trafford as he battled in both the Challenge Cup Final and the Super League Grand Final in the 2016 campaign.

In 2018, he joined Toronto Wolfpack and helped them fulfil their Super League ambition prior to joining newly promoted Leigh Centurions in 2021.

Unable to help them avoid relegation, he joined Toulouse Olympique in 2022 and was one of the French side’s best players as one of the players with the most tackle busts in Super League last year.

According to French publication Treize Mondial he is keen to remain in Super League in 2023.

He wants a new challenge in the top tier perhaps explaining why he won’t stay at Toulouse in 2023.

As to where in Super League the winger / fullback could end up remains unclear.

He will bring any side plenty of explosivity and experience as well as the aforementioned versatility.

He has been around playing for four of the 12 teams in Super League next year meaning he has played for a third of the teams in the top tier which could soon become five depending on where he finds himself in 2023.
