Warriors seal Smith swoop
Wigan Warriors have brought forward the signing of half-back Matty Smith from the Salford City Reds for an undisclosed fee.
Smith, who was out of contract at the end of the season, was expected to make the move to the JJB Stadium at the end of the season but the Warriors have brought him in now following the injury to Thomas Leuluai, who is out with a broken leg. Smith has penned a three-and-a-half-year deal and he is looking forward to his debut for Wigan, which could come as soon as Sunday's clash at Wakefield. "This is a fantastic move for me and a wonderful opportunity," he told Wigan's official website. "Wigan are a great club with some excellent players and I am looking forward to hopefully playing my part in bringing more success in the months and years to come."
