Warrington Wolves find replacement for Josh McGuire

There has been a lot of big rugby league news and Super League news lately with big transfer stories developing at Wigan Warriors, Leeds Rhinos and Hull KR as well as rumours around at Hull FC, Huddersfield Giants and of course Champions St Helens but one club who have taken a decisive step in building for 2024 is the Warrington Wolves.

They announced the signing of Lachlan Fitzgibbon from the Newcastle Knights having beaten Leeds Rhinos to the Australian forward.

He will join the Wire in 2024 and will take up one of the quota spots left by Thomas Mikaele and Josh McGuire.

Mikaele left for the Gold Coast Titans earlier this year whilst McGuire agreed a mutual release after he was given a seven game ban after being found guilty of using discriminatory language against Leigh Leopards in an altercation with Josh Charnley.

The Wolves have now found their replacement but it isn’t Fitzgibbon though his arrival will allow former Wigan youngster Matty Nicholson to shift to 13.

Daryl Powell explained: “Lachlan is a quality player and is a great signing for us for a lot of reasons.

“I’ve had really good, positive conversations with him. He’s a top-class back-rower who’s been consistent over there in the NRL for a number of years now. He runs great lines and is a great professional.

“He’ll be a great addition for next season and the Warrington fans will love what he’ll be able to deliver.

“Matty Nicholson will move to 13 in the middle of the field and he’s really positive about that switch too.”
