Prop Liam Byrne has signed a new four-year deal with Super League side Wigan Warriors.

The 20-year-old Ireland international made his first-grade debut for Wigan in February 2019, and went on to feature 14 times for the club last season.

Warriors head coach Adrian Lam said Byrne is "in a great place to kick-on" with his career and development.

"He's an imposing young man, tough and has an extremely impressive work-ethic," Lam told the club website.

Wigan, beaten by Salford in the preliminary final last season, start their Super League campaign against Warrington on Thursday.
