Wigan Warriors are linking the powerhouse outfit to a new contract

Wigan Warriors have tied down out-of-contract Patrick Mago to a new two-year contract with the option of an additional year at the club.

The Samoan powerhouse has made 70 appearances since arriving at the Warriors ahead of the 2022 campaign.

Mago has a Challenge Cup, League Leaders’ Shield, Super League Grand Final and World Club Challenge to his name during his time with the club.

The 29-year-old’s contract with Wigan was due to expire at the end of the season, but he will now remain a Warrior until at least the end of 2026, with the club having an option for 2027.

On his new contract, Mago said: “I’m very happy to stay at Wigan for at least another two years after this year. I am really settled here with my family.

“We’ve got an incredible group of players and we’re building something special and I’m looking forward to being a part of it.

“I am grateful for the support I continue to receive from my mother, my father, my partner and the whole family. I hope we continue to make everyone proud. I would also like to thank Kris (Radlinski), Matt (Peet), Tommy (Leuluai) and Lockers for their support.”

Wigan Warriors are delighted to retain the services of Patrick Mago

On Mago’s contract extension, Wigan manager Matt Peet said: “We are very pleased with the way Patrick has developed on and off the pitch. He earned this contract by working hard and being dedicated.

“I know his family back home in Australia will be proud of him, along with his partner Bella.

“He is a very popular man with his team-mates, staff and fans as he is a quality player, has a good heart and loves the club.”

Warriors chief executive Kris Radlinski added: “Patrick has become a vital member of our playing squad and a valuable member of our club.

“When overseas players join us, it’s important they understand the role they play in representing Wigan. Patrick was incredible in that regard. He bought the culture of our great city and on the ground he leaves it all there.

“He is a popular member of the team and we are delighted that his journey continues with us.”
