ANTHONY Gelling hopes to be The Wire's "big saviour" and help them to their first Super League title next year.

The centre's move to The Wire alongside Widnes Vikings teammate Keanan Brand has been confirmed, with the former Wigan man penning a two-year deal.

Gelling hopes he and the Wire faithful can "have some fun" during his time with the club.

He is also looking forward to calling The Halliwell Jones Stadium – a ground he ranks as one of his favourites – his home.

“It’s good that it can finally be released," the Cook Island international said.

"I’ve always liked playing here – even when I was at Wigan, this was one of my favourite stadiums to come to.

"To now call this my home ground and to play here every week will be awesome.

"To link up with some of my old Wigan buddies in Jack Hughes and Charners (Josh Charnley) too was one of the key factors in signing here.

"Hopefully the Warrington guys get behind me and we can have some fun.

"I’m hoping to come in as the big saviour – hopefully we will do it next year and break the curse.”

Gelling played for Wigan between 2012 and 2017, helping them to a Grand Final win in 2016 and a World Club Challenge the following year.

He returned to the NRL with the New Zealand Warriors in 2018 but was back in England with Widnes a year later.
