Matty Russell is back at Warrington in 2023.
After years away from the club playing for the likes of Toronto Wolfpack, Leigh Leopards and Toulouse Olympique he returns to a club where he had success winning the League Leaders’ Sheild in 2016 and playing in both major finals.
Russell is a Scottish international and will wear the number 34 shirt in 2023 as he becomes the club’s likely last signing for the new season.
But what can the Wolves accomplish in 2023 with some of the star names they have drafted into the squad?
They finished 11th last year, but on signing for the club, Russell is tipping the Wolves for a big year:
“It’ll be great to see the fans again and connect with them. There’ll be some familiar faces I’m sure.
“If we can find top form, which I’m very confident this team is capable of, there’s no doubt we can push for finals this year.”
It comes after the signing of Josh Drinkwater yesterday to take on the number seven shirt in 2023.
He tipped the Wolves to challenge for the title:
“When you play for a club like Warrington the ambition has to be trophies. The Club wants to win Super League as do I. It’s going to be a process, there’s a pre-season ahead to get ourselves ready. With the squad we’ve got here, if we can gel and come together, I don’t see why we can’t be challenging for that.”
