WARRINGTON Wolves’ utility back Jake Mamo has signed a contract extension until November 2021.
Mamo, 24, has impressed since signing at the start of the 2019 season bringing with him speed and agility, playing at fullback, on the wing or at centre. He has made six appearances to date and has proven he knows where the try-line is with three tries to his name, including a double in the home win over Castleford.
This contract extension follows on from last week’s announcement with Tom Lineham, Toby King and Joe Philbin also agreeing new deals.
Steve Price, Warrington head coach, said: “It shows what a good culture we have developed here at Warrington, that players are keen to commit to the club and want to be a part of this playing squad.
“Jake (Mamo) has shown that he can add some energy and a spark on the edge. He has slotted into the squad well and brings a lot of enthusiasm into training and out on the field. He can play in a number of different positions which makes him a great asset to the side.”
Mamo added: “I’m really happy to have signed a new deal pretty early on in the season. I think there is sometimes a bit of pressure, when you’ve only got a one-year contract, to perform well. I’ve had a few games now, in a few different positions, filling in where the team needs me and I’m grateful to Pricey for having given me that chance; and to have signed me up for a couple more years too.
“The playing squad here has made the transition very easy. We are performing well at the moment, I hope that continues and I can play my part in that.”
