Warrington Wolves have just announced two new signings to the club!
18yr old Daniel Bridge from Wigan Warriors. The brother of Wolves’ centre Chris Bridge who’s looking forward to joining Chris at the club.
Danny played for amateur side Waterhead before joining Wigan in 2009. He’s played for the Warriors under 18s and under 20s academy sides as well as representative rugby for England at under 15 and under 18 levels.
Also confirmed to join the Wolves is Salford City Reds Stefan Ratchford!
The 22-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and the stand-off rejected a new contract at the Willows.
Stefan is a product of the club's youth system. Ratchford made his debut in 2007 and has gone onto make 103 appearances.
Last year, Warrington took Richie Myler off Salford and they've done it again this year.
Salford coach Matt Parish said "Personally I don't think that is right but again it's up to the kid to make a decision, he made it, so good luck to him."
The signing of Danny & Stefan is another example of the club investing in its future, bringing young British talent into the system at Warrington Wolves!!
