Super League club miss out on major transfer

The likes of Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC, Hull KR and Huddersfield Giants have all completed major signings for next year but one club has seemingly missed out on one of their big signings.

This is Jordy Crowther who left Wakefield Trinity mid season prior to joining Warrington Wolves.

This was despite the fact Crowther was set to sign for Castleford Tigers.

But he has now signed for Warrington Wolves.

The forward has been one of our standout performers since his mid-season switch to the Wire from Wakefield Trinity.

The 26-year-old has made an immediate impact during his seven appearances for the club so far, averaging 100 metres and 30 tackles per game.

Speaking on the new deal, Jordan Crowther said: “I’m delighted to be staying.

“Since I arrived here I’ve probably had the most enjoyable time of my career. I feel like I’ve played my best rugby whilst I’ve been here. It’s been a fresh start and I’ve had to prove myself which has brought out the best in me.

“Sam [Burgess] is a massive name in the game – especially as a middle and a fellow Yorkshireman. I can’t wait to pick his brain and hopefully he can take me to that next step and improve my game further.”

Director of Rugby, Gary Chambers, added: “We’re delighted to have secured the services of Jordan at the Wolves.

“Jordan’s approach to the game means he has quickly become popular with both players and the fans.

“He brings with him the traits that we value most at the club – a good person who always gives his all. I have no doubt that Jordan will prove be a key member of our squad.”

Warrington Wolves Head Coach for 2024 Sam Burgess said: “It’s great news to be able to keep Jordy at Warrington.

“He has a great mindset to effort areas and what a teammate should look like. I know the players love his presence and I’m sure I won’t be any different.”

Chambers previously said that he was going to Cas:

“I don’t really understand the situation with, I think he’s signed for Castleford hasn’t he? I’m not really in a position where I know what’s happening with that or can comment on that because I think he’s got a club. I think that’s it really.

“He signed with Cas and that’s it. I think for us it was a really strong piece of work to bring him in and he’s given everything for us. Would I like players like Jordan in this club that do that sort of thing, absolutely. They have that sort of workman-like performance, which is essential in any environment, not just rugby, but he’s signed somewhere else he’s you know he’s on a different path than that for us.”
