Warrington Wolves’ head coach Steve Price has signed a two-year extension to his deal with the club which will see him stay with The Wire until the end of the 2021 campaign.
Price took control of Warrington ahead of the 2018 campaign after Tony Smith’s reign ended with a disappointing 2017 season which saw the club having to fight for their Super League survival in The Qualifiers. Formerly assistant coach at Cronulla, 40-year-old Price guided Warrington to both showpiece finals in 2018 but ended on the losing side to Catalans and Wigan in the Challenge Cup and Grand Finals respectively.
Nevertheless, the Australian improved the team’s forwards vastly and some are already suggesting that 2019 may finally the The Wolves’ year. “I love being part of Warrington and my wife and kids are happy and settled here,” Price told the club’s official website. Committed to the future of Warrington, the head coach is now looking to add trophies, explaining “it’s a fantastic club with great people involved, so I wasn’t going anywhere. I came here for a reason, to get that silverware. I honestly feel we can make a difference with the strength of our playing group and I’m really looking forward to 2019.”
Warrington kick off their Super League campaign against Leeds Rhinos at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on February 2nd.
