Warrington is one of the original twenty-two clubs that formed the Northern Rugby Football Union in 1895 and the only one that has played every season in the top flight. They are nicknamed "The Wire" in reference to the wire-pulling industry in the town.
Warrington have local rivalries with Widnes Vikings, St. Helens and Wigan Warriors. They have won three League Championships and are the fourth most successful team in the Challenge Cup with eight victories, behind Wigan, St Helens and Leeds. Their most successful season came in 1953–54 when they completed a Championship and Challenge Cup 'Double', beating Halifax twice in the space of four days to first win the Challenge Cup 18–4 in a replay at Odsal, then clinch the Championship 8–7 at Maine Rd.
The current head coach at the club is Tony Smith who joined in March 2009. As of the 2014 season, the captaincy is jointly held by Second-rower Ben Westwood and Hooker Michael Monaghan.
