Anthony became a first-team regular in 2014, making 23 starts and touching down for 11 tries in the process.
The big New Zealander had shown real promise in the previous year and despite missing a proportion of the season through a broken collarbone, was a part of the Cook Islands’ World Cup squad.
Gelling certainly realised his potential in his breakthrough season and is rewarded with a starting squad number, vacated by Darrell Goulding, for the new campaign.
The former Auckland Vulcans utility back deputised superbly when Goulding’s season was plagued by injury, establishing a lethal partnership with Josh Charnley on the right edge.
His class was demonstrated with a hat-trick over Salford Red Devils in August. The towering 6ft4 centre was also shortlisted for the Club’s Player of the Year Award. Despite missing out he was commended with the Community Award after volunteering at Wigan Youth Zone throughout the year.
Gelling played at Toyota Cup level with the Sydney Roosters before moving to New Zealand Warriors partner club Auckland Vulcans, with whom he featured in the 2011 New South Wales Cup Grand Final.
