MIKE Cooper feels rugby league is leading the way in terms of the mental health of players.

The Wire’s clash with Salford Red Devils tomorrow, Friday, and every other Super League game played this weekend will be used to raise awareness of several partner charities.

This round has been dedicated as “Wellbeing Round” and will be used highlight the most pressing issues in men’s physical and mental health.

Wire prop Cooper says he will always do whatever he can to help in this particular campaign and feels there has been a shift in attitude during his time in the game with players more willing to speak out.

“I’m big on this – I’ve had my own personal issues away from rugby that I’ve needed help with,” he said.

“Our game is really leading the way in terms of speaking out, blokes getting things off their chest and not being afraid to say how they feel.

“In my years at the club, I’ve certainly seen a shift in attitude of players in terms of admitting when they’re not right.

“Whatever I can do to help, I will because it’s so important.”

Warrington Wolves will be donating a percentage of match ticket sales revenue to the Offload charity run by the club’s charitable foundation alongside Friday’s opponents and Widnes Vikings, and will also be holding bucket collections around the ground.
