Joe Burgess and Jack Wells leave Wigan

Wigan Warriors can confirm that Joe Burgess and Jack Wells have both left the Club.  

Making his debut for Wigan in 2013, Burgess played 129 games and scored 107 tries across two spells at his hometown club. 

The 26-year-old winger played and scored in two Super League Grand Finals, before heading Down Under in 2016 where he had stints with Sydney Roosters and South Sydney Rabbitohs.   

Returning to Wigan in 2017, Burgess became the second player in history to score a hat-trick in a World Club Challenge match as the Warriors beat Cronulla Sharks.   

After making his Super League debut for Wigan in 2016, second rower Wells has been restricted to 18 first team appearances after numerous injury setbacks.   

The 23-year-old, who had loan spells at Swinton Lions and Toronto Wolfpack, is an Academy Grand Final winner with the Warriors and has also represented England Academy.   

Wigan Warriors executive director, Kris Radlinski, said: “Everyone at Wigan Warriors would like to thank Joe and Jack for their efforts during their time at the Club and wish them both well in the next stages of their careers. 

“They have both represented the Club with honour and leave as very popular guys. Our doors will always remain open for them should they ever wish to pay us a visit.”
