Finch set for Wigan exit
Stand-off Brett Finch will quit Wigan at the end of the season after deciding not to renew his contract with the Warriors.
The 30-year-old moved to England from Melbourne Storm in 2011 and helped Wigan lift the Challenge Cup at Wembley in his first season at the club.
Finch has played a key role in Wigan's highly impressive first half of the season but will return home later this year.
"The Wigan club has been fantastic to me and I felt that it was important to sort out my future now so that everyone knew the situation and so that the club could start to make other plans," Finch said.
"There are a number of options back home that I find attractive and my life after footy needs to be given consideration. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in England and to play for a club like Wigan has been a dream."
The former Country Origin star has scored 13 tries in 47 appearances for Wigan and head coach Shaun Wane admitted he will be sad to see the Australian go.
"I know his character and he will be trying his very best for Wigan until the last second of this season. Although I am sad that he has chosen to move on, I understand completely his reasons for doing so," said the Warriors chief.
