Former Cronulla Sharks junior Brent Grose has extended his contract at the Warrington club for a further 3 years as announced today. Grose picked up �Rookie of the Year� in 2001 with the Cronulla Sharks and went on to play for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2002 before making the move to Warrington in 2003.
Grose, a talented utility back equally at home at fullback or in the centres, has played in all 11 Super League competition games this season picking up 3 tries for his trouble. When quizzed by the official Warrington Wolves website about a possible return to the NRL in 2008, Grose didn�t beat around the bush offering �I have had offers for next year but I�m not interested, Warrington is where I call my home now.�
This is a welcomed signing for Warrington who head to Knowsley Road to face St Helens who sit second on the points table six points clear of the Wolves who are now in the top 6. On the back of five wins from the past six league games, the morale in the Wolves camp will be high knowing one of their most consistent performers over the past 2 years has committed to the club until 2008.
In other news from the Wolves camp, teenage winger Phil Berry has been released from his contract after failing a drug test in which traces of the prohibited substance Nandrolone was found. Berry received a 2 year ban by the RFL and Warrington terminated the current contract due to be renewed in November 2005.
