Kibula relishes opportunity after swapping Wigan for Wire

New Warrington signing Samy Kibula is eager to help the club challenge for trophies after joining the club following his release by Wigan.

Kibula has agreed a one-year deal with the Wolves, after having spent much of this season on loan with Dewsbury and Swinton in the Championship.

Kibula said: “I’m delighted to have signed for Warrington Wolves.

“It is a club always competing for trophies and that excites me.

“I am looking forward to meeting all the staff and players.

“This is a new and exciting chapter in my life and I can’t wait to get started.”

Warrington coach Steve Price said: “Samy’s a young player who has come through the academy system at Wigan.

“He’s a big lad and has certainly got some good leg speed and handy ball skills in him.

“Samy’s been really consistent in his performances over the second part of the season with Swinton and has grown as a young person.

“He’s still got a lot of development in his game and a lot of hard work in front of him but we will be doing everything we can to help him become a first-team player.”
