Wigan Warriors are delighted to announce the re-signing of young centre, Iain Thornley, from Premiership Rugby Union side Sale Sharks on a three-and-a-half year contract for the remainder of 2012 and for Seasons 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Iain is a quality local player who came through Wigan's highly- acclaimed Academy set up and impressed and was given the opportunity to switch codes in the summer of 2010.

Rugby General Manager, Kris Radlinski, said:

"This is good news for the club. We were disappointed that Iain chose to leave us two years ago but understood his reasoning. We made sure it was an amicable departure since we always felt that one day he may wish to return. He is a terrific athlete who can play both in the back-row and in the centre. He has made a brave choice in returning to Rugby League and the Warriors as he was impressing many people in Rugby Union."

Iain Thornley added:

" This is a great opportunity for me and I am thrilled to be given the chance to return to the Wigan Warriors. It is nice to know that the Club continued to follow my progress after my departure and it is my aim to pay Wigan back by working hard, earning a place in the side and playing to the best of my ability. I am really looking forward to being a part again of this great Club.

" I have enjoyed my time at Sale and wish them well for the future."
