Jack Hughes has spoken of his pride after being named Warrington Wolves’ captain for the 2021 Super League season. Hughes was co-captain with Chris Hill last year, but prop Hill has stepped away from that responsibility this season to enable him to concentrate on his own performances.
“It’s a massive honour and something I’m really proud of,” Hughes said. “Obviously, I understand the weight and responsibility that comes with the role and it’s something I’ll take extremely seriously. I’ll uphold the highest of standards at all times – any leadership role would require that – but I’m extremely proud.”
Hughes, who began his career with Wigan Warriors and later spent a season on loan at Huddersfield Giants, has been a regular in the Warrington team since joining in 2016.
