Sam Tomkins has pledged his long-term future to Wigan Warriors by signing a new five-year contract at the DW Stadium.
The 22-year-old full-back, who is currently starring in the Four Nations tournament, which England are 9/1 with bookmaker to win, has decided to stay with this year’s Challenge Cup winners, even though his brother, Joel, has switched codes and joined rugby union side Saracens.
Sam Tomkins, who has put pen to paper on a deal which also prevents him from speaking to rugby union suitors and Australian NRL outfits until 2016, said: “Playing for Wigan means everything to me having come through the Academy and reserve grades.
“Being a part of the Grand Final success last year and Challenge Cup victory this season are the highlights of my career so far.”
He is expected to feature in Saturday’s showdown with New Zealand, 11/2 to win the Four Nations, at Hull’s KC Stadium, with England needing to win to set up a final clash with Australia.
