Wigan Warriors are pleased to announce that Patrick Mago has signed a new two-year deal with the Club, with an option for a third.

The Auckland-born prop forward will remain a Warrior until the end of 2026 with the option in the Club’s favour for 2027.

Mago joined Wigan ahead of the 2022 season and he went on to win silverware in his first year at the Club – lifting the Challenge Cup. In 2023 he also added the League Leaders’ Shield and Grand Final to his list of honours followed by the World Club Challenge title in February 2024.

The former North Queensland, Brisbane and South Sydney player, who recently made his 71st appearance for the Club, has become fans’ favourite at The Brick Community Stadium with his impactful performances from the bench. 

On signing, Patrick Mago said: “I’m really happy to be staying at Wigan for at least another two years after this year. I’m really settled here with my family.

”We have an incredible group of players and we’re building something special, and I’m over the moon to be part of that.”

Mago added: “I’m grateful for the support I continue to receive from my mum, my dad, my partner and my whole family. I hope to continue to make everyone proud. I’d also like to thank Kris, Matt, Tommy and Lockers for their support.”

Warriors’ Head Coach Matt Peet said: “We are really happy with the way Patrick has developed himself on and off the field. He has earned this contract by working hard and being dedicated.

“I know his family at home in Australia will be proud of him along with his partner Bella.

“He is a very popular man with his teammates, staff and fans because he is a quality player, has a kind heart and loves the club.”

Chief Executive Kris Radlinski added: “Patrick has become a vital member of our playing squad and a valued member of our club. 

“When players from overseas join us, it is important that they understand the role that they have in representing Wigan. Patrick has been incredible in that respect. He has bought into the culture of our great town and on the field, he leaves everything out there. 

“He is a popular member of the team and we are thrilled that his journey continues with us.“
