Wire Break Code To Sign Burrell

Wire Break Code To Sign Burrell

Warrington have crossed codes to snap up former England International centre Luther Burrell from Rugby Union side Northampton Saints.

The 31-year-old has agreed to a deal to take him through until November 2021 but will only link up with the rest of the Wire squad on July 1, once the Union season has ended.

Burrell will add strength in depth across the backline and back row, and Wolves head coach Steve Price is delighted to have him on board.

“He’s a quality signing, being a former England International who has played at the highest level in Rugby Union,” Price said.

“It’s exciting for Luther to be able to switch codes and to challenge himself in the Super League; in saying that he has still got a number of games left this season with Northampton, once that season is completed we look forward to getting him here and involved in our team.

“He’ll have to get up to speed with new calls, different teammates and a different game, so it will take a bit of time to transition, but he’s tall, athletic and can play in a number of positions which adds a lot of depth to our playing squad.

“He’s had an interest in the game of Rugby League from a young age, and is a great coup for our club.”
