Warrington Wolves hooker Micky Higham is not resting on his laurels and is targeting more silverware with the club.

The 33-year-old started his career at Leigh and played for St Helens and Wigan before joining the Wolves for the 2009 season.

The club have gone on to lift three Challenge Cups - in 2009, 2010 and 2012 - and picked up the 2011 League Leaders’ Shield, while also reaching the last two Grand Finals.

"I want to keep winning things with this club. We’re a talented club and we’re still going places, still improving."

Higham, who has a year left on his deal at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, was recently awarded a three-month testimonial by the Rugby Football League but has no intention of retiring just yet.

He the Warrington Guardian: "Playing wise, I want to keep winning things with this club. We're a talented club and we're still going places, still improving.

"We had the potential and now we've gone forward and I still want to be a part of that. Plus, from a personal point of view, I'm feeling pretty fresh and fit.

Age just a number

"My age is going up a little bit, but you speak to (Warrington coach) Tony (Smith) and age is just a number if you look after yourself.

"If I can keep playing well and keep looking to improve and train hard then that's one of my goals, to play as long as I can and to play well - I don’t want to just make the numbers up.

"There are still a lot of challenges and I'm still very driven to be successful. I'm putting things in place for after rugby, but I don't want to wish it away too soon as once it's gone you’re a long time retired."

He added: "At the time when I was leaving Wigan I didn't know what was going to happen, I'm just so glad Warrington gave me the opportunity.

"Six years have flown by and I'd love to stay here for as long as I can.

"I feel like part of the furniture, the teams have changed and the squad's different but I've been fortunate to stay here and loved every minute of it."
