Declan Patton on the Outer at Warrington?

Declan Patton has fallen out of favour with Coach Tony Smith and the talented half is believed to be looking for a new home.

Patton, 21, has fallen down the pecking order with coach Tony Smith as things go bad to worse for the Wolves. Warrington are winless after the first six rounds of the 2017 Betfred Super League Season.


It has been reported that coach Tony Smith has taken aim at Patton, highlighting his performance so far in the season to be under par and has dropped him from his squad until further notice.

This is just another set-back for Patton who was pushed aside when Warrington signed Chris Sandow in the middle of the 2016 season, which saw Patton’s game time reduced.

The 2017 season has seen the arrival of Kevin Brown which has not improved the situation for Patton and with the emergence of Harvey Livett, who Tony Smith has chose to play in the halves rather then Patton, his playing future at Warrington is now in some doubt going forward.


It is understood Warrington would consider loaning Patton out to a team, but Patton is believed to prefer to cut ties with the Wolves and start fresh at a new team, which could guarantee him more game time.

Patton has made 22 appearances and scored 6 tries for Warrington Wolves since making his debut against Wakefield Trinity back in the 2015 season.
