Warrington sign Souths forward Clark

Warrington Wolves have announced the signing of South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Jason Clark on a two-year deal, starting from next season.

The 28-year-old back-rower comes into Super League after winning the NRL with Souths in 2014 and also representing City Origin a year later.

A consistent figure in the Rabbitohs camp since his debut in 2009, Clark will be hoping for similar success in the Northern Hemisphere.

Warrington coach Steve Price was delighted to get the deal over the line, saying: “We are very pleased to have signed Jason to our club from next season and he’s going to be a great acquisition,”

“Having coached against Jason for a number of years he typifies what we are building here at our club.

“He’s a grand final winner and understands what a winning culture is.

He is selfless; everything is about the team on and off the field.

“He understands hard work and it’s players like Jason who help to make a team a success.”

Clark commented: “I’m glad to have my contract organised with Warrington and I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my career over in England,”

“The past 11 seasons have been a young boy’s dream come true.

“All I’ve done is wear the red and green, and following discussions with Steve Price, Simon Moran and Karl Fitzpatrick, I’ll be able to extend my career in the primrose and blue of Warrington.

“Warrington is a similar club to Souths.

“They have a long and rich history which is something that attracted me to the club.

“Everyone I’ve spoken to says Warrington is a great club.

“They are very well organised, well coached and have a great playing squad.”
