Wigan star signs new deal

Wigan Warriors have announced Bevan French has signed a one-year deal at the Club for 2021 with a further option for 2022.

Since joining the Club from Parramatta Eels last year, the Australian back has made 26 appearances for the Cherry and Whites and scored 22 tries in all competitions.

Wigan Warriors executive director, Kris Radlinski, said: “This is a very important signing for the Club. At a time when the country needs good news, this should make everyone smile, not just Wigan fans.

“It is really sad that Bevan is producing moments of magic in front of empty stadiums. Bevan is box office and people like him need to be seen live to be appreciated. He is everything that the English Super League should be about. Young, exciting, articulate and the good news is that he is going to get better and better.

“We need to thank our owner Ian Lenagan for making this bold statement in challenging times. This is for the fans of Wigan to thank you for your continued love and support.”

On his new deal, French said: “I’m very happy to be here. Ever since I arrived, people in the Club, teammates and all the Wigan community have been really welcoming and I wanted to be able to spend the next year or two years here.

“Making my decision has been easier thinking about the pros at Wigan. We’ve got great coaching staff here and a great bunch of players. It’s an honour to play with some of the players in this team. “
