IT would appear that Warrington Wolves’ recruitment for the 2024 season is all but complete.

That is what new head coach Sam Burgess seemed to imply at his first press conference on Monday afternoon, although he refused to completely rule out more new faces coming in.

The Wire have signed five new players for next year – prop Zane Musgrove, second rower Lachlan Fitzgibbon and outside back Rodrick Tai are all on their way over from the NRL while hooker Brad Dwyer and youngster Wesley Bruines have signed from Hull FC and St Helens respectively.

In addition, centre Toby King is returning to the fold following his Super League title-winning loan spell at Wigan Warriors, while Jordy Crowther’s short-term move from Wakefield Trinity has been made permanent.

Deals to sign Fitzgibbon and Dwyer and the return of King were agreed while Burgess’ predecessor Daryl Powell was still in charge, with the England legend involved in the signings of Musgrove, Bruines and Tai as well as the lengthening of Crowther’s stay at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

In terms of further recruitment, Burgess said his squad is “pretty set” but hinted there could be room for manoeuvre moving forward.

“With players coming and going, it’s always a fluid situation,” he said.

“I’m still getting my head around the cap here and what you can and can’t do – there’s a bit more freedom around loans over here which is new to me.

“We’re pretty set on where we’re at right now I’d say, but that’s not to say there won’t be a small bit of movement.

“That will present itself over the coming months.”

Musgrove, Fitzgibbon and Tai’s arrivals mean The Wire’s overseas quota for 2024 is now full, with Paul Vaughan, Matt Dufty, Josh Drinkwater and Sam Kasiano taking up the remaining spots.

That means that one of the existing overseas players would have to move on if Warrington were of a mind to target more imports from Down Under.

Players will start reporting for pre-season training from next week, with younger players reporting initially before first-team regulars start to return on November 13.

And when asked about the strengths and weaknesses of the squad he is taking over, Burgess says he will take a collective approach as opposed to an individual one.

“I don’t want to nail down any position,” he said.

“I think it’s more so as a whole, the holistic approach – what can the team do better? What can we do better collectively?

“I think they are the questions and that’s for me to work out.

“I think there’s a few things we can tidy up – some small effort areas like inside pressure work.

“It’s just small detail, more holistic, more than what’s better for the team rather than individual aspects.”
