Sensible move for all parties concerned! Be a wise decision if Navarrete follows too.

Wigan Warriors can confirm that Chris Hankinson has signed for Betfred Championship side London Broncos on a year-long loan deal.

Since joining Wigan midway through 2018, the 27-year-old centre has played 23 games for the Club, scoring three tries and kicking 19 goals.

A powerful and athletic running back, Hankinson joins London with Championship experience after previous spells with Leigh Centurions and Swinton Lions.

Wigan Warriors executive director, Kris Radlinski, said: “Chris was an unsung hero in 2020. He was the 19th man in near enough every game in the season.

“At the end of the season, Chris came to me and said that at his age he needed to be playing regularly. With no reserve grade and the cancellation of dual registration, we needed to explore other opportunities for Chris.

“A chance to be a starting player for London has arisen and we all feel that it is the right thing for Chris at this time.

He will have a year in the capital and then return to Wigan in 2022. He will be a great addition to Danny Ward’s London Broncos team.”

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Because it is a loan, could Wigan be expecting Gildart to sign for an Austraiian club for 2022?

I am a tad confused, I know it doesn't take much! Hank was out of contract at the end of last season, Wigan must have extended his deal for him to go out on loan. Anybody any the wiser?

I thought his contract ran out at the end of this year to be honest?

But that being said a sensible move for him it seems to me much like Wane before him Lam doesn’t fancy Hankinson long term either

This is the club site. Unfortunately the quoted information does not stack up. It says signed from Swinton July 2018 for two years and then mentions a one year extension in June but that would only take us part way through the loan period and definitely not into the year after.

Just suggests a new contract was agreed with him.
Was underused and IMO undervalued. A good move for him and hope he does well.
We shall see if he returns to Wigan.
