New deals for 10 Wolves players
Warrington Wolves captain Adrian Morley is among 10 players to sign new contracts with the Carnegie Challenge Cup finalists.
The 35-year-old England prop was out of contract at the end of the season and had considered retiring, but today confirmed he would play on until the end of 2013.
Morley's predecessor as captain, Lee Briers, 34, has also signed a new 12-month deal while another veteran, full-back Brett Hodgson, has signed a two-year deal which will take him past his 36th birthday.
Ironically, Hodgson - the 2009 Man of Steel - left Huddersfield Giants two years ago because they were prepared to offer him only a 12-month contract.
Briers, the Wolves' longest-serving player and the club's highest scorer of all time with 2,532 points, is set to make his 400th appearance for them in Saturday's crunch clash with Wigan Warriors at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Hooker Mickey Higham, 31, and second rower James Laithwaite, who is currently on loan to Hull KR, have agreed one-year extensions, while reserve hooker Brad Dwyer, 19, and prop forward Mike Cooper, 23, have signed new two-year deals.
England second rower Ben Westwood, 31, has extended his contract by another two years until November 2015 and half-back Gareth O'Brien, 20, has earned himself a three-year deal.
Former Leigh Centurions prop Chris Hill, 24, who has been a big success in his first season in Stobart Super League, has been rewarded with a three-year extension, taking him to the end of 2016.
Warrington head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith said: "It's great that we are keeping players who are doing a fine job for us and helping this club advance.
"As a coach, I'm big on stability in the camp within a club and we've got plenty of talent and experience so the blend is a good one.
"I'm confident that it's going to continue to be one of our strengths as we maintain that stability and keep the momentum moving forward at the club for the future.
"The re-signing of these players is certainly going to help us do that."
Veteran second rower David Solomona, 34, and winger Rhys Williams, 22, who is currently on loan to Castleford Tigers, are the club's other out-of-contract players.
