Now in his 10th season with Wire and after five wearing the captain’s armband, Chris has been awarded a deserved testimonial. He shared the skipper’s duties with Jack Hughes last season and has now handed the responsibility to the second rower. Chris had played in the Championship with Leigh Centurions for seven seasons, eventually becoming their captain, before he joined us in 2012 and he quickly became one of Super League’s most outstanding forwards. His first season in primrose and blue included a Challenge Cup winners’ medal and he earned a second when we defeated St Helens at Wembley in 2019. Chris was a member of the revived Great Britain side that toured Down Under that year and he has now amassed 29 England caps and four for GB. He appeared in his second World Cup competition in Australasia in 2018 and gave a towering display in the final. Chris has been named in the Super League Dream team three times. Chris has been left out of the England train-on squad at the moment but is aiming for a big season for Wire and to impress national head coach Shaun Wane sufficiently to restore him ahead of the World Cup.
