Wigan executive director Kris Radlinski believe the Warriors have all the tools to make next year’s campaign a special one.

The club announced the capture of George Burgess this evening and Radlinski believes the addition of the England prop underlines their ambitions.

He said: “We are thrilled to have secured the services of one of the most recognisable players in world rugby league.

“The Burgess boys transcend sport, so for us to have secured the services of George for the next three years is a major coup for Wigan and for the Betfred Super League.

“For such an important signing, it didn’t take long to finalise the deal once we set out the vision for our club and the role that George will play.

“Now, with our Head Coach in place and our recruitment complete, we can plan to make 2020 a memorable Wigan season.”

Coach Adrian Lam added: “George is one of the world’s best front-rowers. He is respected highly by his peers in the NRL and at international level and his experience, leadership and physicality will be of real benefit for us moving forward.

“I’m looking forward to welcoming him into the group next season and working with him.”
