Ultra-safe under a high ball and a trigger for many of Wolves’ attacking moves, Stefan was born in Wigan and his career began with Salford whom he joined in 2007. His versatility was spotted by the then England coach Tony Smith who recruited him for his train-on squad for the 2009 Four Nations tournament. Smith brought Stefan to The Halliwell Jones Stadium in 2012 and he appeared in that year’s Challenge Cup Final victory over Leeds. His play-anywhere attitude, electrifying breaks, fine defence and accurate goal-kicking has guaranteed his place in the starting line-up and he made 25 appearances last season. He has contributed over 500 points for us across six seasons. Stefan initially gained international honours with the England Knights side and he gained his first full international cap against Samoa in mid-season international last May. He was then chosen for the England World Cup squad in the autumn.
Despite being built like a forward Tom has a devastating turn of speed and is an accomplished finisher. He joined us for the 2016 season from Hull FC and was part of the League Leaders’ winning squad and Grand Final team of that year. Tom began his career in Rugby in 2006 with the York Union club, later switching codes having been attracted to our game at York College and he joined the York City Knights. He moved to Hull in 2012 and went on to score 54 tries in 68 appearances for the Airlie Birds. In his second season at the KC Stadium he was named the club’s Young Player of the Year and he won the Rugby Leaguer and League Express’ Albert Goldthorpe Rookie of the Year award, topping those achievements by being named in the Super League Dream Team.
Kiwi Bryson has joined the Wolves from Leigh Centurions though he never actually played for them. He had been recruited to the Sports Village from the NRL for the 2018 season but Warrington stepped in and agreed terms with Leigh to effect the transfer. Bryson began his NRL career with Cronulla Sharks in 2007 and moved to Canterbury Bulldogs three years later. He was then signed by South Sydney helping to Premiership success in 2014. In all, he made 99 appearances for the Rabbitohs, scored 37 tries and also kicked goals when required. He has been awarded 10 New Zealand caps, appearing in the Four Nations tournament in 2009 and the 2013 World Cup.
Ryan has become renowned for his consistency and was in excellent form throughout the 2017 season scoring 16 tries and creating many more in 27 appearances; named the club’s Player and Players’ Player of the Year. He was unlucky not to be chosen for England’s World Cup squad. He was signed initially by Bradford Bulls but before he could make a first team appearance he joined Wakefield Trinity Wildcats. His form earned him a place in the England train-on squad two years later and in 2010 he came to Warrington since when his left edge performances have been outstanding. He earned Challenge Cup winners medals in his first year and in 2012, and has scored over 150 tries in almost 250 games for our club and representing England five times. He was named a member of the Super League Dream Team in 2012 and 2016.
Kevin joined us last season from Widnes Vikings for an undisclosed fee as a replacement for Chris Sandow and he scored a try with his first touch of the ball in the memorable World Series victory against Brisbane Broncos. In a Super League career spanning 15 seasons he had spent four years with the Vikings where he was rewarded with the captaincy. He was an academy international in 2002 and he began his Super League career with Wigan a year later. He remained with the Warriors until to 2006 and was transferred to Huddersfield with whom he spent seven years. He was selected for Great Britain in 2007 and for England in 2010 and was recalled to the England squad for the Four Nations in 2016 appearing against New Zealand. He went on to make a huge impact on England’s World Cup campaign last autumn. In more than 300 SL appearances Kevin has scored more than 100 tries.
NRL star Tyrone joined the Wolves during pre-season as a marquee signing. He was enticed from the Gold Coast Titans where he had spent two seasons. Before that Tyrone had played for Newcastle Knights for whom he debuted in 2011 and made 97 appearances. A fine goal-kicker with a success rate of more than 80 per cent he is always likely to make a telling break and is reliable in defence… qualities that earned him selection for the Indigenous All Stars and the New South Wales Country side. Tyrone was head coach Steve Price’s first signing for the Wolves who has described him as a natural rugby player with a great understanding of the game.

Inspirational and never one to take a backward step, skull-capped Chris joined us in 2012 after having played for Leigh Centurions for seven seasons in the Championship. Since his move to Warrington Chris has enjoyed a dazzling run of success culminating in him being named as captain in 2016. His first season in primrose and blue included a Challenge Cup winners’ medal and it ended with him winning all the player accolades at the club’s awards night. He also began his international career that year and has now played for England 26 times. He appeared in his second World Cup competition in Australasia last autumn and gave a towering display in the final. Chris was named in the Super League Dream team in 2012, 2014 and 2016 and is contracted with the Wolves to 2021.
Quick off the mark in attack and hard working in defence, Daryl was signed from his home town club, Castleford Tigers, joining us in 2015. He spent four seasons with Cas and his superb breaks often from the play-the-ball earned him the coveted Steve Prescott Man of Steel award in his final season with them; he was only the fourth hooker to win the trophy. He was also named Super League’s Young Player of the Year. Daryl played in the 2014 Challenge Cup Final with Cas and in the 2016 final with Wolves and he has now made 88 appearances in primrose and blue. He figured in all three of England’s games in the 2014 Four Nations tournament and he was called up again for the 2016 competition.
Forceful on the offensive and rarely missing a tackle in defence Mike returned to his hometown club last season after spending three seasons with St George Illawarra Dragons in the NRL for whom he played 69 times and missed only one match during his first season Down Under. Mike made his Warrington debut in 2006 and earned selection for the England Knights in 2011 and 2012 and went on to play for the full England side in 2015..

Ben made a superb start to his career making his first appearance for Warrington against Widnes at the age of 17 and being selected to tour Australia with the England Under-18s side. He was capped by Ireland before he was 20 for the 2013 World Cup tournament and, switching back to England, he was included in Steve McNamara’s squad for the 2015 test series against New Zealand. Despite missing much of last season through injury England coach Wayne Bennett selected him in his England World Cup squad in the autumn of 2017, stepping out in the final. A product of Warrington’s outstanding youth policy, he was the game’s top try scoring forward in 2016 and was also named in the Super League Dream Team.
A Wiganer, Jack was signed by his home town club in 2011 and he gained experience with Barrow; his debut in cherry and white came against that club midway through that season. Jack played 84 times for Wigan in Super League and in 2015 he was loaned to Huddersfield Giants with Larne Patrick going the other way. As a youngster, he was a member of the English Academy side that defeated the Australian Schools in 2010 and two years later he was selected for England Knights in the European Cup. He made 33 appearances in primrose and blue last season.
Ben, a near-18 stone Kiwi, who qualified for Tonga in the recent World Cup competition, is renowned for his committed defence and powerful go-forward and is also a prolific try scorer. Wolves paid £175,000 to Salford for the 26-year-old’s services during the close season, beating Hull KR for his signature. Ben brings to the club experience also with Wests Tigers and the Penrith Panthers in the NRL. He joined the Red Devils for the 2016 season and his performances last year were a massive factor in the club’s rise in the Super League table and earned him selection for the Dream Team.

Wigan-born Dominic joined us last season from his hometown club. After brief dual registration spells with Widnes Vikings and South Wales Scorpions Dom made his debut for the Warriors in 2012. He went on to make 102 appearances in cherry and white, helping to defeat us in two of his four Grand Finals. He also played for Leigh under dual registration. Dom was best man for Jack Hughes on his wedding day in 2016 and soon afterwards followed him to the Wolves. His appearances were limited to seven last season but he played a huge role in the 46-18 win against St Helens.
Declan enjoyed a great season with the under 19s in 2014 and was duly rewarded with a full-time contract. He made his Super League debut just before his 20th birthday in a stunning 80-0 win over Wakefield in April 2015 and he went on to secure his place in our side for the next two months. An accomplished goal-kicker and touch-finder, he proved his calmness when under pressure when he landed a field goal against Leeds and he was a try scorer in the Challenge Cup tie at Dewsbury. In 2016 he continued to impress when he deputised for the injured Chris Sandow and scored the first try in the Grand Final against Wigan at Old Trafford. Last season was his best to date, making 25 appearances, kicking 56 goals and landing three field goals.
The explosive ball-carrier and Tongan international Sitaleka was recruited by the Wolves last August from the Penrith Panthers whom he helped to reach the NRL play-offs last season. His strong performances with his hometown Manurewa Marlins in Auckland and within the New Zealand Warriors junior system attracted the attention of West Tigers whom he joined in 2013. He earned his cap for Tonga in 2014. Sitaleka joined the Panthers for the 2016 campaign, quickly establishing a regular place in the side. On occasion, Sitaleka has also turned out on the wing.

Warrington-born Joe played for Culcheth Eagles and Latchford Albion before he was signed by Warrington as a teenager. In 2014 he made his first-team debut off the bench against Hull KR in a 34-4 win at Craven Park. After loan spells at Bradford, Swinton and Rochdale. Joe’s no-nonsense approach and powerful barges in midfield earned him more frequent appearances for Wire in 2016 and last season he developed even further into an especially effective impact replacement, coming off the bench 22 times. He was a member of the Ireland squad that performed so well in last autumn’s World Cup tournament and looks set for a great season ahead.
Younger brother of George, he played initially for the Meltham All Blacks side in Huddersfield where he was born. Toby made his first-team debut in July 2014 when we beat London Broncos 72-12 and in his next appearance in 2015 he touched down twice in the resounding 80-0 win over Wakefield. It was against Trinity too that he scored a fine try in the 2016 Challenge Cup semi-final. Toby made six appearances last season but because of injury was denied the chance of ending it in style with Ireland’s World Cup squad.
George, older brother of centre Toby, played as an amateur with the Meltham All Blacks and Siddal clubs in West Yorkshire, his natural skills being honed within the Huddersfield youth set-up. After being recommended to Warrington by scout Tommy Gleeson, George came was introduced into the first team in June 2014 when we defeated Bradford 50-24 and since then his go-forward coupled with fine footwork has opened up many defences. In 2016 he scored the winning try against the Catalans Dragons in Perpignan. Last season he made 19 appearances in the first team and has made 74 in all. He appeared in all three of Ireland’s games in the World Cup campaign in the autumn.
A member of a Warrington Rugby League family and a product of the Rylands amateur side, Harvey shone while playing initially for the Wolves’ Under-16s and then the Under-19s becoming a full-time professional ahead of 2016. He made his Super League debut in the 2017 season opener against Catalans Dragons, made an immediate impact and soon afterwards was voted man of the match when he scored a try and six goals against St Helens. It was feared that a hamstring injury would put him out of action for the season but he was able to resume in the Qualifiers, scoring tries against Featherstone and Hull KR. He has also represented England as a youth international.
Hard working and a great finisher, Mitch was born in Sutherland, New South Wales, and joined Wolves during the close season from Leigh Centurions who had captured him from Cronulla Sharks. Mitch began his NRL career with the Sharks in 2006 after representing Australia as a schoolboy. He switched to Wests Tigers in 2010 and then moved on to Canterbury Bulldogs with whom he played in the 2014 Grand Final against South Sydney. He returned to the Sharks in 2015 where he was coached by Steve Price. In 132 NRL games Mitch touched down 39 times. At Leigh he made 26 appearances, scoring eight tries.
Morgan, a product of the Leeds Rhinos’ scholarship scheme, he has continually impressed with his fearlessness. Leeds don’t usually part with outstanding young talent but Morgan had been attracted by Warrington’s world-class academy set-up and came on board. He achieved full-time status with Wolves at the start of the 2016 season after many impressive performances with the Under-19s, making his first appearance in a 70-10 Challenge Cup tie win against Oldham. He made 11 appearances, mostly from the bench, last season and shows great promise for the future.
Jack made his debut in a 2015 pre-season friendly against Toulouse and played his first Super League scene towards the end of the campaign when he gave a fearless display in a 46-16 victory over Hull FC. He held his place in the first team and scored two tries behind the sticks against Catalans Dragons and also touched down in the final game at St Helens. Jack started out as a winger with the Under-19s but has blossomed as the last line of defence. He has represented England Under-18s in a test series against Australia Schoolboys and last season he also appeared on loan for Widnes Vikings and Rochdale Hornets.
A close-season signing from Castleford Tigers’ Academy, he is regarded as one of the hottest young properties in the game thanks to his powerful attacking skills, sterling defence, athleticism and size. With the England Academy squad Luis has been coached by Lee Briers, who rates him highly, and last season he was named Man of the Series for his performances in the test matches against the French. He also played in the Tigers’ side in the 2017 Under-19s Grand Final against Wigan. As a junior he played for the Oulton Raiders amateur club and he joined Cas on a second year scholarship in 2016.
Following in the footsteps of Harvey Livett, Pat completed the Rugby League BTEC Extended Diploma Level 3 at Warrington Collegiate and he became a first-team squad member in 2016 giving impressive displays with Lee Briers’ Under-19s. In total he figured in 19 of their 20 fixtures last season, scoring three tries, and he also played for the reserves. Pat’s association with the Wolves began as a member of the club’s Under-15s scholarship scheme and he also played for the Wigan St Judes amateur club. His enthusiastic work in the pack was also recognised with his inclusion in the England Academy squad in 2016.
A nowadays-rare convert from Rugby Union, 20-year-old Taylor was handed a contract with Wolves in April last year. Taylor had impressed while playing for Yorkshire Carnegie in the Union code in 34 appearances. He had also been selected for the 15-a-side England Under-18s and Under-20s, the latter as a member of their European Championship winning team. In his first game for Wolves’ Reserves against Hull last season Taylor registered four tries and he also turned out for Rochdale Hornets on dual registration and for North Wales Crusaders on loan.
Charnley made the switch from League to Union after winning the Super League Grand Final with Wigan Warriors in 2016. He’s gone on to make 32 appearances for Sale; making 16 in his debut season.
Charnley made his Super League debut for Wigan in 2010 and went on to make over 170 appearances for the Cherry and Whites, crossing for over 160 tries. In his time at Wigan he won two Super League rings (2013, 2016) and two Challenge Cup medals (2011, 2013).
In his international Rugby League career he has been capped seven times for England between 2012 and 2014, representing his country in the World Cup of 2013 and the Four Nations the following year.

Signed from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats as a centre in 2002, Ben’s consistently outstanding performances in primrose and blue since then have been both inspirational and created many tries and have rightly earned him the prefix ‘Super’. His career really took off after he converted to the pack in 2005 and he became a regular fixture in the England team playing in two World Cup competitions and earning 27 caps; he’s also appeared four times in the Super League Dream Team. His never-say-die displays also earned him the joint captaincy of Wolves in 2014. Just after celebrating his 36th birthday Ben played his 400th game for Wolves against Catalans last August; only nine other Wire players have topped that total and only Lee Briers in the Super League era. Ben was playing as well as ever at the end of last season and is now all set to enjoy his 17th with the Wolves.
