Havard joined Wigan’s U17s from St Patrick’s ARLFC halfway through the 2016 season, and went on to win the club’s scholarship player of the year at the end of the following campaign.

After winning the Academy Grand Final in 2018, he made his first team debut in a 46-6 win over Wakefield Trinity in July 2019, before claiming another title with the U19s.

The prop has also won the League Leaders’ Shield and the Challenge Cup, and recently made his full England debut in the mid-season test against France.

Wigan chief executive Kris Radlinski said: “We have known the potential of Ethan for many years. He has been somebody who we have believed in since he joined us as a junior.

"He has clearly grown into a fine specimen of an athlete but he has retained his dedication and humility. He has got a massive future at the club and will be right at the centre of future planning.“
