Cooper has signed a new two-year contract with the Wolves that will keep him at the Halliwell Jones until at least the end of 2022.

The 31-year-old is celebrating a testimonial with the Wire this year and Price believes he has been one of the club’s form forwards during his spell as head coach.

He said: “It’s good to be able to extend the contract of another of our core senior players.

“I’ve had a good working relationship with Mike for a long time now and he has been one of our form forwards for the last couple of seasons.

“You know what you get from Mike each week; he has been really consistent in his performances and I’m ecstatic for him to re-sign at the club he loves.

“Being a local junior he loves the town and everyone involved. I can see him still evolving in his game too and push back into representative honours.”

Cooper said: “I am delighted to have agreed my new contract. As a local player having grown up with the club, it means that bit more to me every time I pull on our colours.

“It is an honour to be celebrating my testimonial this year too as Warrington Wolves has been a big part of my life from day one, and the support of the fans has been invaluable

“I am still enjoying my Rugby League and it means a lot to me to be part of such a family orientated club.

“I can’t wait to be a part of the Wire family for another two years, and I still feel I have a lot to offer on and off the field out in the community.”
