Wigan have issued a hands-off warning to Super League rivals Bradford regarding Great Britain hooker Terry Newton.
Newton, who is facing competition from new signing Wayne Godwin, has been linked with a move to the Bulls following their decision to suspend hooker Ryan Hudson.
But Warriors chairman Maurice Lindsay insists Newton, who was Great Britain�s regular hooker in the recent Tri-Nations Series, is not for sale at any price.
�I don�t care if someone offered me a quarter of a million pounds, they wouldn�t get Terry Newton,� he said.
�He�s the best hooker in this country and he will never leave this club unless it�s by his own decision at the end of his contract and even then we don�t want to lose him.
�The kid who has come from Castleford fully understands that. He�s delighted to be deputy to Terry.�
