Wigan Warriors are delighted to announce the re-signing of star England International winger, Joe Burgess, on a three-year deal with effect from December 1st 2016.
He will re-join the Warriors after one season in the NRL with Sydney Roosters.
“I’m proud to say that I had a go at the NRL. It didn’t go perfectly to plan and I’d definitely consider giving it another go but, for now, I’m looking forward to coming home. I really want to win some silverware with my hometown Club and that is definitely the aim when I return,” Burgess said.
“I’m also looking forward to enjoying some of my mum’s cooking!”
21-year-old Burgess debuted for Wigan in 2013 and made his breakthrough into the side in 2014 scoring a remarkable 25 tries in 27 games in his first full season including a try in the Super League Grand Final.
