WARRINGTON Wolves have extended the contract of centre Toby King until the end of 2019.
King, 21, was subject of a bizarre criticism from Mayor of Warrington Cllr Les Morgan earlier this season, which resulted in the Mayor stepping down.
Despite that, King has scored five tries in six games for the Wolves this season and has formed an exciting partnership with new signing Josh Charnley in the recent run of successive wins.
Head coach Steve Price said: “There’s a lot more improvement in Toby King with his age and I know what sort of player he can be down the track. I’m confident that we can get some really good footy from Toby and it’s exciting times for the club to tie down a prospect of his calibre.”
Toby and brother George joined the Wolves from Huddersfield in 2014.
King added: “It means everything that the club continues to put its faith in me. It’s a fantastic club to be at and I’m very pleased to have extended my contract with Warrington. It’s great news for me and my family and I’m very excited for the future. I want to thank Steve Price and everyone else at the club for believing in me.”
