Ex-Warrington Wolves forward Ashton Sims names his favourite Super League stadium

Ashton Sims banned

Ashton Sims is a name that will not be forgotten at one club in Super League.

Having made the move from the North Queensland Cowboys ahead of the 2015 Super League season, Sims signed on the dotted line for the Warrington Wolves.

The rampaging forward would stay for three years at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, registering 90 appearances and crossing the whitewash seven times.

And, it was his experience in the UK that will stay with him for the rest of his life.

“Some of the best people I’ve ever met in my life are over in the UK,” Sims told the Spirit of Sport podcast.

“They’ve got the best humour, but some are very cynical, they are a pessimistic bunch!

“I’m a bit of a homebody, I like being home in my surroundings, so when I moved to Warrington I explored it for what it’s worth.

“It’s smack bang in the middle of Liverpool and Manchester, so being in and around there was great.”

Though he enjoyed three years at Warrington, it was another Super League ground which Sims favoured.

“One of my favourite grounds I’ve ever played at was Headingley – they always get a great crowd with big Yorkshire fans.

“I’m also a big cricket fan, so I love the sport and playing next door to where Ian Botham an Andrew Symonds have played cricket was incredible.”
