French signs Wigan contract extension

Bevan French will be staying with Wigan Warriors beyond this season after agreeing a long-term contract extension.

French has made 96 appearances for Wigan since joining midway through the 2019 season, being part of the teams which won the 2022 Betfred Challenge Cup and last year’s Grand Final.
