Utility man Gary Wheeler is looking for a big 2018 season as he eyes another promotion with the Canada based club. This is Wheeler’s second season with the Wolfpack after the ex-Warrington Wolves man opted to swap Wolfpacks ahead of their inaugural season in 2017.
Originally a St Helens junior, Wheeler burst on to the Super League scene with tremendous promise and made 65 appearances for the Saints in total, proving himself as an accomplished Super League player before moving to the Halliwell Jones Stadium for two years.
Wheeler is able to play as consistently at stand-off as he is in the centres or on the wing and is the type of player who is valuable to any squad; able to do his job for the team where ever he ends up playing.
Injury plagued his 2017 season, limiting him to just six appearances in the League 1 promotion campaign but, with a full pre-season behind him, Wheeler is now looking to rip into the Ruby League Championship. His experience at the top level could be key as members of the Wolfpack squad face tough new challenges in a more fierce competition in 2018.
