Yesterday Warrington Wolves announced that both George Williams and Paul Vaughan had signed extended deals.
Both players have been instrumental in the club’s red-hot start to the season which has seen the Wire win all eight games in the Betfred Super League so far.
Williams has signed a new long-term deal until November 2026 which will take his time at the club to five-and-a-half years.
The half-back has made 39 appearances so far, scoring 14 tries. He currently leads the competition for try assists and carries and is the joint leader along with Vaughan for metres made on 1,566.
He is also top of the Man of Steel leaderboard after the opening eight rounds.
Australia prop Vaughan has made a huge impact since arriving at the club and has extended his stay with the Wire until at least November 2025.
The front-rower is a metre machine having made 1,566 thus far – 722 of which are post-contact. He has also crossed for three tries in the opening rounds.
He has quickly become a fans favourite winning back-to-back Player of the Month club awards for February and March.
Both were highly sought after by numerous NRL clubs and their extensions are a big scoop for not only the club but Super League.
After this news, Vaughan spoke on Sky Sports about what the Wolves can achieve in 2023, he said:
“We just need to keep getting better every week and if we can do that we can have a successful season.”
Jenna Brooks then asked whether the Wolves could go the season unbeaten:
“That would be nice, I am not going to make any outrageous statements today. It is a little cliché but we are just taking it game by game and we have to try to get better each week.
“I don’t think we have had a complete 80 minute performance yet which is pretty exciting because we have won eight in a row.
“We have been successful so far but we have a way to go.”
