Kevin Penny responds to claims that he’s set to make a rugby league return

Huddersfield Warrington

Few players have the pace that Kevin Penny once possessed in his hay day at Warrington.

The winger, who also liked a bit of basketball before he made his name in rugby league in 2007 with some outstanding tries against the likes of Leeds and St Helens in the Challenge, had such pace which always made him a major threat to defences.

He was a key player when Warrington last won the League Leaders’ Shield in 2016 as they finished the season 160 minutes away from the treble unfortunately losing both major finals to Hull FC and Wigan respectively.

He also had spells with the likes of Widnes, Swinton and Rochdale before retiring in 2017. But recent reports suggested he was set to make a rugby league return at the age of 34 with National Conference League team Leigh East sharing pictures of him training with them.

This led many to speculate that he was set to return to the sport with the club but the former Warrington wing has now responded to those claims stating that he “will 100% not be making a return to rugby league” on Twitter.
