Wigan Warriors sign up Kiwi on two-year deal

Wigan Warriors have confirmed that prop Patrick Mago has signed a new two-year deal that will keep him at the club until at least the end of 2026.

There is also an option “in the Club’s favour” to secure the New Zealand-born forward for the 2027 season.

Previously playing in NRL for North Queensland Cowboys, Brisbane Broncos and South Sydney Rabbitohs, he came to Super League in 2022.

With the Warriors, Mago has won everything in British rugby league – the Challenge Cup, League Leaders’ Shield, Grand Final and the World Club Challenge title in February 2024.

He has made 71 appearances for the Warriors, with this year being his third.

Mago happy to be staying at Wigan Warriors

On signing, he said: “I’m really happy to be staying at Wigan for at least another two years after this year. I’m really settled here with my family.

”We have an incredible group of players and we’re building something special, and I’m over the moon to be part of that.

“I’m grateful for the support I continue to receive from my mum, my dad, my partner and my whole family. I hope to continue to make everyone proud.”

Wigan’s head coach, Matt Peet, said: “We are really happy with the way Patrick has developed himself on and off the field. He has earned this contract by working hard and being dedicated.

“I know his family at home in Australia will be proud of him along with his partner Bella.

“He is a very popular man with his teammates, staff and fans because he is a quality player, has a kind heart and loves the club.”

Wigan’s Chief Executive, Kris Radlinski, added: “Patrick has become a vital member of our playing squad and a valued member of our club.

“When players from overseas join us, it is important that they understand the role that they have in representing Wigan. Patrick has been incredible in that respect. He has bought into the culture of our great town and on the field, he leaves everything out there.

“He is a popular member of the team and we are thrilled that his journey continues with us.“

Mago will be in action as Wigan Warriors face Hull KR in the Challenge Cup semi-final on Saturday.
