Warrington Wolves duo go through surgery as club confirms pre-season arrangement

Super League

After a disappointing 2022 campaign, Warrington fans are hoping 2023 is a return to form for the Wolves.

The Wire had only finished outside the top five once from 2010-21 before they slumped to 11th in the league this year.

It was Daryl Powell’s first campaign in charge after working wonders at Castleford. It was a year of optimism but it soon became clear that it was in fact the start of a rebuild at the Halliwell Jones one that has seen the Wolves make a number of big signings for 2023.

Paul Vaughn and Josh McGuire arrive from the NRL whilst more big forwards have been brought in from Catalans in the shape of Gil Dudson and Sam Kasiano.

A big season to prepare for then for the Wolves, and the Wire have confirmed when their journey will officially begin confirming that pre-season will begin on November 14th the week of the World Cup Final.

That gives two Warrington players who are undergoing surgery time to get fit for pre-season in the shape of Matty Ashton and youngster Tom Whitehead.

Both had ankle issues and have had surgery recently leaving them with a six week recovery period.

Ashton, in a difficult year for Warrington, had another superb season with his brilliant pace always causing defences problems.

The Wolves will want him at his best in 2023.

The Wolves also have two players with ACL injuries in the shape of Joe Philbin and Connor Wrench and the pair will continue their recoveries over the off season.
