Place of Birth:
Hull, East Yorkshire

A former Scholarship Player of the Year, Wardill had a superb season with the club in 2016 after being handed his first team debut against Wigan Warriors, although opportunities became harder to come by following a couple of serious injuries.

However, Wardill remains highly regarded by the Rovers coaching staff and is tipped to become a regular player of the future, with his toughness and rugby intelligence marking him out from a number of other players his age.

An outside back in his amateur days, Wardill is still able to play at wing or centre, but is now thought of primarily as a back row forward as he continues to improve physically.
