Super League star makes big decision on his future

We have seen plenty of big announcements from Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves and Hull KR in recent times including player retention.

St Helens have been busy tying down Curtis Sironen, James Bell and Konrad Hurrell for the future.

Meanwhile, Hull KR have recently tied down George King having given a new deal to Jordan Abdull earlier this year.

Speaking of halfbacks, Warrington fended off the NRL with a new deal for George Williams whilst Leeds have been busy in that department giving new deals to Ash Handley, Jarrod O’Connor, Sam Lisone, Nene MacDonald and Justin Sangare.

Wigan have also been busy and have tied down another star.

Wigan have confirmed that Kaide Ellis has extended his contract with the Club for a further three years.

The new contract will see the 26-year-old prop remain at Wigan until at least the end of the 2026 season.

Ellis arrived in Wigan from St George Illawarra Dragons at the start of 2022 making 23 appearances and scoring two tries in his first season, also collecting a Betfred Challenge Cup winners medal. He has made nine appearances so far in 2023.

After agreeing to the contract extension, Kaide Ellis said: “I’m loving my time at the Club, me and my partner have settled in well here.

“I’m grateful that the club has shown faith in me and I can’t wait for what’s ahead over the next few seasons.“

Head coach Matt Peet said: “Kaide is excellent to work with and demands the best from himself on a daily basis.

“After transitioning to life in a new country and a new competition his form this year has been very good and he certainly has more levels in his game. We are delighted that he is with us for at least three more seasons.“

Wigan have recently given a new long term deal to Brad O’Neill as well as the club seem determine to put together a very strong pack.

They have signed Kruise Leeming, Sam Walters and Tiaki Chan already for next year.

Meanwhile they have settled on Adam Keighran as their long term solution at centre with Toby King set to return to Warrington.
