Chris Hill has been named as Warrington Wolves captain for 2016.
The 28 year-old has been promoted from his role as the club’s vice-captain last season following the release of former skipper Joel Monaghan.
Hill joined the Wolves ahead of the 2012 season from Leigh Centurions and has gone on to make 132 appearances in Primrose and Blue.
“I feel immensely proud to be appointed as the captain of this great club,” Hill told the Wolves’ official website. “There have been a number of great leaders and captains who have gone before me so to be added to this list is quite humbling. There are a great number of leaders within the group so, no doubt, throughout the year they will all have valuable input and hopefully support me in this role.”
Warrington head of coaching Tony Smith added: “Chris has been a leader at the club for a number of seasons. We see on a week to week basis his leadership qualities out on the pitch. However, his attitude towards training and how he conducts himself off the pitch is also first class.”
“Although Chris will be named as captain we have a number of other players who provide fantastic leadership and will support Chris in his role.”
