IF images from pre-season training are anything to go by, it appears as though a familiar face has returned to Warrington Wolves.

Chris Baron, who was the club's strength and conditioning coach for five years under Tony Smith, has been working with the squad since they returned to training last month.

The club have not officially confirmed his return, but he looks to have returned in a similar role under new head of performance Ade Gardner.

Baron left The Wire after the 2014 season to spend time travelling the world.

Since then, he has worked in strength and conditioning roles at Widnes Vikings, Leigh Centurions and the England national team.
