Gene Genie – Young Wolf Wing gets his wish of a first team start

The start of the season has seen quite a few changes in the Wolves squad with some established names leaving and some new ones coming in. One such newcomer is Wolves’ winger, Gene Ormsby.  Gene has been on the fringes of the Wolves’ squad for a while but this year has made the step up into the first team, making his debut in our narrow loss to Leeds Rhinos, making a very encouraging start when doing so.

Gene is a real modern winger – big, strong, fast with the height to trouble opponents in the air in the same way that Wolves star Joel Monaghan has for the past few seasons.  When you consider that as well as Gene and Joel, the Wolves can also call on the likes of Chris Riley and Kevin Penny, there’s an embarrassment of riches for Head Coach Tony Smith to call on in the wing positions.

It’s great to see another product of the Wolves academy make his debut in the first team.  Congratulations to Gene – here’s hoping he continues to grab his first team chance with both hands.

It’s not just the HJ Stadium that is 10 years old this year…
