Warrington Wolves deal rejected by Super League forward

Warrington Wolves have been one of the most active in the transfer market in recent weeks and months.

Head coach Daryl Powell has been busy rebuilding his side following a dismal first year at the Halliwell Jones Stadium with the likes of club stalwarts Mike Cooper, Josh Charnley and Gareth Widdop leaving.

On the flipside, Powell has been extremely busy bringing in new blood that he hopes will be able to take them further in the 2023 and hopefully the play-offs and beyond.

That being said, one forward who will not be at the club in 2022 is Rob Mulhern, with the former Hull KR man one of six confirmed to be leaving at the end of 2022 having not signed a new deal.

However, it wasn’t initially the plan for Mulhern to leave the Cheshire club, with Powell confirming that an offer was made for the Irish international on the back of his good performances

“Rob was one we made an offer to and he just ended up not quite working out for him in terms of what we offered,” Powell told Wire TV.

“We’ve moved on, but he’s been really good. He’s been a class fella all the way through and he hasn’t deviated from that.

“He’s been outstanding and I pay tribute to the way he has handled himself through it all. And, he’s actually playing some of his best rugby of the season – his metres have gone through the roof.”

It remains to be seen where Mulhern will end up plying his trade in 2023 but whichever Super League club he joins, they will have gained a brilliant forward that seemingly always goes under the radar despite some big minutes and efforts in the middle.

Meanwhile, Gareth Widdop is expected to join Castleford Tigers whilst Matt Davis and Jack Hughes are reportedly heading for the Leigh Centurions.
