STALWART stand-off Lee Briers has been the lynchpin in the Wolves attack for 15 years.
The former Saints half-back has been like a fine wine throughout that period, seemingly getting better with age.
His career at the top of the game looked to be over in 2008, though, with Briers linked with a move to Championship outfit Barrow.
But Tony Smith’s arrival at the club has seen Briers hit new heights and, in 2010 against Leeds, he won the Lance Todd trophy in the Challenge Cup final.
A Super League medal still alludes him, though, and he will be hoping this year he can help lead Warrington to become only the fifth team to win at Old Trafford in the Grand Final.
