Super League star makes huge transfer to Championship club

Warrington Wolves have been battling Leeds Rhinos, Hull KR and Salford Red Devils for a spot in the play offs but arguably there is a bigger focus on 2024 at the Halliwell Jones.

They have Sam Burgess coming in through the door for 2024 as new head coach and the Wolves have signed Lachlan Fitzgibbon as well as Rodrick Tai.

They have also confirmed a number departures.

Peter Mata’utia, Daryl Clark, Thomas Mikaele, Greg Minikin, Jack Darbyshire and Aiden Doolan will all leave the club.

Minikin joined at the start of last season and showed his commitment and dedication to overcome an ACL injury before making his debut last July. He’s made 20 appearances for the club to date.

This meant he was set for a major move to a Super League rival or indeed Featherstone Rovers who he has been linked with.

His move to Post Office Road has now been confirmed. He will be a Featherstone Rovers player in 2024 despite the fact they missed out on promotion.

Minikin will join James Ford’s side ahead of the the 2024 campaign. Minikin has a depth of experience having started his career at York before plying his trade at Castleford, Hull KR and Warrington.

Minikin commented:

“I’m really pleased to be joining the club and to work with Fordy again. I had the a couple of Super League options but I’m really excited about the project at Featherstone. I’m looking forward to getting out on that field and showing the best version of myself in a Featherstone shirt.”

James Ford added:

“I’ve known Greg a long time and coached him at the very start of his career. He’s developed into a tough competitor at centre, I can’t wait to get him on the field next year and to get the best version of him playing in a Fev shirt.”
