JOE Bullock's move to Warrington Wolves has been confirmed.

The prop forward has penned a three-year deal to join The Wire from Wigan Warriors, with whom he has spent the past three seasons.

A move that has been widely rumoured for some time, Bullock's signing is the fifth to be confirmed for incoming head coach Daryl Powell.

He joins Castleford Tigers pair Oliver Holmes and Peter Mata'utia, Featherstone Rovers prop James Harrison and Hull KR utility back Greg Minikin as a new addition at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Bullock's arrival bolsters a front row that will be losing the long-serving Chris Hill, who is joining Huddersfield Giants, and Sitaleki Akauola.

“I’m really happy to be joining the club," the 28-year-old said.

“I’ve had plenty of good battles with Warrington over the years whilst at Wigan so to get the opportunity to pull on the kit next year is a big honour for me.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to come here and I think it’s a good progression in my career.

"I’m looking forward to what we can do in the years ahead.

“I’ve had some good chats with Daryl Powell - I know what I can bring to the team and I’m looking forward to putting some good performances in now.

“The atmosphere is always good at The Halliwell Jones Stadium and the fans are always very loud.

"I can’t wait to run out for the first time.”
