One of the hottest prospects in Super League, Warrington Wolves’ Harvey Livett has penned a new two year contract until the end of 2020 – and the club have beaten off NRL interest to secure his services.
As the 21 year old’s contract was set to expire at the end of the campaign, head coach Steve Price was keen to tie down Wire’s academy product to a longer term deal, something he made clear after the utility player scored a hat trick in Warrington’s recent victory over Leeds. Price said that “I’ve been pleased with Harvey since he came into the playing group after the unfortunate injury to Ben Currie. As everyone saw he had a great game against Leeds but the challenge now is to be consistent and become a regular first-team player.” He further added that the club is very excited at the promise shown by the Rylands Sharks product.
Livett himself, having made his debut in 2017, has made twenty two appearances for the Wolves at the time of writing. Having attracted interest from the NRL, he turned down the chance to leave his boyhood club in favour of establishing himself in Wire colours. “I had a few other options but I’m a Warrington lad and I always wanted to stay with the club,” he explained. “I’m looking forward to the next two years and I’m confident we can win some silverware in that time. We’re looking good this year in the league and are still in the Challenge Cup so hopefully we can challenge for both this season.”
