Huge twist in Josh McGuire’s future following Warrington Wolves exit

Warrington Wolves have parted company with Josh McGuire with immediate effect.

The loose-forward joined the Wolves at the start of the season becoming the only World Cup winner currently in Super League.

He, alongside Paul Vaughan, were major signings for the Wolves.

However playing in a pre-season friendly against Leigh Leopards, McGuire was hit with a seven match ban for discriminatory language.

Following his return he was then his with a 12 match ban and a £1000. This came after he allegedly used similar language directed at a member of Josh Charnley’s family as the two met in another meeting between Warrington and Leigh.

This led to speculation about his future and ultimately culminated in his departure from the club as of today.

Warrington made the following statement:

“The Club can confirm that Josh McGuire has left the Wire by mutual agreement with immediate effect.

“McGuire has now returned to Australia with his family. We wish Josh well in his next chapter.”

McGuire is thus headed back home.

But what happens now for McGuire?

He has flown home to Australia but according to French publication Trieze Mondial earlier this week, he could he headed to a new club in the shape of an Elite One Championship side in France.

According to the publication, one club has already put feelers out to McGuire.

The publication initially suggested he would be able to dodge his ban in the competition like Corey Norman did in the 2022/23 season in France.

However, the French Federation has informed clubs that this will not be the case likely blocking any move to France unless McGuire is prepared to miss 10 weeks.
