Cade Cust leaves Warriors

Wigan Warriors can confirm that stand-off, Cade Cust, will leave the Club following a two-year spell.

Cust joined the Warriors ahead of the 2022 campaign from Manly Warringah Sea Eagles. The half has gone on to play 40 games for the Cherry & Whites, scoring six tries.

Cust was influential in the Warriors 2022 Challenge Cup victory which saw him dislocate an elbow before going on to lift the trophy. The 25-year-old also added a League Leaders’ Shield to his tally in 2023.

Though not selected to play in the 2023 Betfred Super League Grand Final, Cust was a key part of the 2023 squad that were crowned Champions.

Speaking on Cust’s departure, Chief Executive Kris Radlinski said: “I would personally like to thank Custy for the way he has approached his stay with Wigan. Not everything has gone his way but he has shown outstanding personal attributes.

“He wholeheartedly committed to our Club. In the changing rooms after every game, you do not know if he has played or been left out, he has always been happy for the team first, putting personal disappointment to one side.”

Radlinski added: “The attitude he displayed when not getting selected for the First team but instead playing for the Reserve Team builds Clubs and he is an outstanding example to younger players.

“I am intensely confident that his teammates will vouch for his resilient character. He will always be welcomed with huge respect into our Club and he is the kind of bloke you would love to catch up with for a beer.”

Wigan Warriors wish Cade Cust the best of luck in his future endeavours.
