How George Williams feels about choosing Warrington over Wigan

George Williams has revealed just why he chose Warrington over Wigan.

The English halfback hit the headlines earlier in the year when claims of homesickness plagued his last few weeks as a Canberra Raiders player back in the NRL.

When news of his imminent return to the UK was revealed, Wigan was the club where almost everyone believed Williams would sign.

However, after rejecting a move back to where it all started, the 26-year-old chose Warrington.

“A massive reason for me coming to Warrington was the atmosphere, it’s always brilliant with the fans always behind the team. It was my first experience of it against Saints and it definitely didn’t disappoint. I really enjoyed my home debut,” Williams said.

It was always going to be a tough decision with Wigan being my hometown club but when I spoke to Warrington, I liked the new challenge and where the club is heading really excites me so I’m pleased with my decision.”

Williams already has two tries in four appearances for the Wolves after slotting in seamlessly and the halfback has attributed that to how welcoming the club has been.

“It’s been really good so far, I’m really enjoying what has been something new for me, like any new job you’re going to be pretty nervous meeting everyone but everyone’s took me in really well and now I’m just trying to find my feet in the team so I’m really enjoying it so far.

“Everyone has been brilliant and as a halfback you’ve got to call the plays and the organise the structure of the team which has taken me a week or two, sometimes with fatigue I got the wrong play but it’s coming to me now, like I say I am enjoying it now and just finding that role for myself.

“I’d like to say getting to where I know I could be would be straight away but it doesn’t happen like that. I’m working as hard as I can, Pricey and all the staff and players are all doing everything to make me settle in as quickly as possible. I want to play the best I can every week which I’m working hard to do.”
