WARRINGTON Wolves head coach Steve Price believes his England full-back Stefan Ratchford can still get better.

Price is in his third full season coaching the 31-year-old, who joined The Wire from Salford Red Devils in 2012 and has gone on to make 237 appearances, score 80 tries and kick 300 goals.

Ratchford is also expected to skipper the side for the 2020 home opener against St Helens tomorrow in the absence of suspended Chris Hill and injured fellow co-captain Jack Hughes.

Price said: “It is awesome news for our club to reach an agreement with Stef.

"He is one of the most professional players I have come across in the game.

"He is so diligent in his preparation on and off the field, and is a wonderful guy to coach.

"I still see him getting even better.

"It’s cracking news to have extended his stay until 2022.

"He’s been a really good sounding board for me and is a strong leader within our team which I expect him to continue to grow.”
