0

WARRINGTON Wolves have re-signed outside back Ben Pomeroy to bolster the squad.

Pomeroy, 34, will join the club with immediate effect for the remainder of the 2018 season having been playing in France with Lezignan.

The signing follows the injury to Ben Currie which will see the centre miss the rest of the season and facing knee ligament surgery.

Pomeroy is comfortable playing at centre and wing but also in the back row. He made his Warrington debut in July last season playing four games and crossing for four tries. Pomeroy holds club heritage number 1137 and will wear squad number 29.

Pomeroy has represented Penrith Panthers and Cronulla Sharks in the NRL since making his professional debut in 2004 and Super League side the Catalans Dragons for two seasons in 2014 and 2015.

On the representative scene Pomeroy has played for the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII in 2007 as well as representing City in the City versus Country series between 2007 and 2009.

Pomeroy said: “I’m very excited about returning to Warrington. I always wanted to come back at some point so it’s great that the opportunity has come about so soon.

“I enjoyed my time with the club last year and it’s great to see the team going well on the field this season. I can’t wait to get started.”

Wolves’ head coach Steve Price added: “Ben’s a pro with a really good understanding of the game having been around for quite a while now. He’s a team-first player and can play in a number of positions; in the back row as well as at centre. He played a few games here at Warrington last year and he’s someone who everyone loves playing with. I had no hesitation in getting him back over here.”
