Baron left the club in 2014, but says he is glad to be back at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

“Warrington is a club I enjoyed some good times at,” he said.

“To be invited back on board is great and I’m really looking forward to it.

“I’ve been away and looked at a few things and although things have changed you’ve still got to work hard, turn up with a good attitude and be surrounded by good people.

“I’d like to think I’ll add to that as I know some of these players and people and know what makes them tick.

“I’ve spoken to people about Steve Price – people like Wayne Bennett whose opinion you don’t take lightly – he seems to have similar values and ethics to me. Hopefully it will be a good fit.

“It’ll be fun to go in the home dug-out again too. I’ve missed it.

“It’s always a good atmosphere. The fans always turn out so I’m looking forward to that again.”

Since Baron left The Wire, he had filled strength and conditioning roles with Widnes Vikings, Leigh Centurions and the England national team.

Head of performance Ade Gardner hailed Baron as “instrumental” in England’s recent success.

“Chris is a fantastic addition to our performance team,” he said.

“He has been an instrumental part of England’s recent success and having worked here previously has a great relationship with the players as well as understanding the culture and values of the club.”
