DARYL Clark has committed his future to Warrington Wolves by agreeing a contract extension.

The hooker will put pen-to-paper on a three-year extension to his current deal to tie himself to the club until November 2023.

2014 Man of Steel winner Clark, who has made 134 appearances for The Wire, was due to be out of contract at the end of next season and there have long been rumours of NRL interest in his services.

However, head coach Steve Price says securing him the 26-year-old to a longer contract is “a massive coup” for the club and for Super League.

“I see Daryl playing a pivotal part in our club for many years to come,” he said.

“He’s still got a lot of good years of footy ahead of him and there’s a lot more improvement to come too.

“He’s starting to understand the game better and I can only see him growing more.

“He’s an important cog in our wheel. I love everything about him and how he plays – he’s tenacious and has got some really good attacking attributes.

“As a club we are excited to have Daz signed up for that length of contract.

“To have secured a player of his calibre until 2023 is a massive coup for the club, Super League and the game in England.

“I think it’s important we keep our top English players in the Super League. I know there a lot of clubs on the other side of the world, knocking on the door looking to cherry-pick our best talent, so it’s good that these English boys want to stay here and keep building the Super League competition.

“Daryl loves the boys and the club and is happy to extend his stay.”
