Young Warrington Wolves hooker Brad Dwyer has agreed a two-year deal to keep him at the club until November 2016.
The hooker made his first-team debut back in March 2012 and has since made 14 appearances including two to date this season. He has experienced spells out on loan most recently with Huddersfield Giants last season and also on dual registration with our partner club Swinton Lions having impressed at academy level early in his career.
A Squadbuilder-supported player, Dwyer is another fine example of home-grown talent progressing through the ranks as the club looks to retain the bright prospects of the future.
Dwyer currently sits alongside experienced names learning his trade from Michael Monaghan and Micky Higham.
Brad said on his new deal: “I’m made up. It’s a bit of security for me and has come off the back of a lot of hard work in pre-season. I would like a bit more game time than what I’ve had so far but it’s about being patient and I’m happy with where I am.
“There’s quite a few of us who have broken through this year; some getting more game time than others. The more Super League game time we get the better we will be.
“Tony’s backing me, I’ve just got to be patient and bide my time.”
Head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith added: “Brad has progressed well in the time he has been here. He is learning his trade behind two high-quality hookers and is biding his time; taking advantage of the learning experience. He’s done a great job each time he’s stepped out for us and he is an inspiration around the training ground highly focussed on improving and for that reason we are delighted to extend his contract. It’s great to be bringing these young players through. The experience for them is enormous and they are helping to enhance our current squad. The depth of new talent coming though is great for the club.”
