WARRINGTON Wolves have moved to tie down another of their off-contract players for the coming years.

Joe Bullock was among the senior first-team players in the final year of their deals, but the club have now confirmed a two-year contract extension for the prop.

The 31-year-old is now committed to The Wire until the end of the 2026 season and joins full-back Matt Dufty in penning fresh terms with the club in recent weeks.

“I’m very happy to have committed my future here," Bullock said.

“I’ve had some good chats with Sam (Burgess, head coach) and I’m excited about where the future of the club is going.

“I’ve enjoyed my time here ever since I arrived. I love the club, the squad we’ve got here and the structures around us.

“Sam’s influence around the club is amazing and the rapport he has with the lads is positive.

"I feel he’s really going to help me progress and develop. It’s an exciting opportunity for me.”

 'A valued part of our pack'

Since joining the club ahead of the 2022 season, Bullock has made 43 appearances for the club but appeared to have fallen down the pecking order under Burgess.

He spent the opening weeks of the season on loan at Hull FC and also appeared on dual-registration for Widnes Vikings having seen his pre-season hindered by a knee injury.

However, he returned to the side for last week's clash with Leeds Rhinos and marked the occasion with his first Super League try for the club, helping them to a 34-8 victory.

Now he is confirmed to be remaining a part of his squad for the long-term, Burgess insists he will be "an important player" for him going forward.

“I’m happy Bull has agreed a contract extension with the club," the Wire boss said.

“He’s a valued part of our pack, a popular figure amongst the playing group and he will be an important player for us in the years ahead.”
