Sam Burgess Contemplates Extending Warrington Wolves Contract

Warrington Wolves Head Coach Sam Burgess Open to Extending Stay Beyond Initial Contract

Warrington Wolves head coach Sam Burgess has left the door open to potentially remaining with the club beyond his initial two-year contract, despite revealing that he has already rejected a couple of offers to return to the NRL in Australia.

Burgess, who joined the Halliwell Jones Stadium at the beginning of this year, has been repeatedly linked with an early return to the NRL. However, he has repeatedly and publicly insisted that he is not interested in an early departure from Warrington.

“I’m doing nothing at the moment, I’m not doing any negotiations anywhere,” Burgess said. “I’ve had a couple of offers to get back early and I just won’t entertain it because I care about what we’re building. I’m eight months in, I’ve no rush to do anything.”

In a recent interview with Love Rugby League, Burgess reaffirmed his stance, stating that he will definitely complete his two-year contract. However, when asked if he could stay longer than the initially planned duration, he seemingly kept the door ajar, saying he will review his position next year and is not thinking about anything long-term until at least the end of this season.

The experienced coach also expressed his love for the town of Warrington and the strong connection between the team and the local community, further reiterating his desire to stay in Super League for at least the two years he originally promised.

“I love the town. I love the people, the fans and the players. I absolutely love it here, it’s great. The connection between the town and the team is there, and they care about each other. There’s definitely a connection there which is really important to me,” Burgess added.

While Burgess remains focused on the task at hand for the remainder of the 2023 season, his openness to extending his stay beyond the initial contract period will undoubtedly be welcomed by Warrington Wolves fans, who will hope to see the experienced coach lead the team to success in the years to come.
