Josh McGuire reveals Super League fan culture is more passionate than in NRL

Josh McGuire was one of the key signings that Warrington Wolves have made this season and the 2017 World Cup winner will bring plenty to the side that finished 11th in 2022.

An intense and hard-hitting forward he adds to a pack that has been bolstered massively in the off-season.

Gil Dudson and Sam Kasiano have joined from Catalans Dragons whilst fellow NRL signing Paul Vaughan has also signed alongside McGuire.

There seems to have been a clear focus on experience as well as presence in the pack with the four signings all set to link up with youngsters such as Matty Nicholson who is the youngest player to don the number 12 in Super League this season.

A self-confessed ‘footy-head- McGuire believes that the fan culture of Super League separates the competition from the NRL and has expressed his excitement to play at the Halliwell Jones in front of fans.

Speaking to Betfred on their Youtube channel the Australian commented.

“I know the crowds aren’t as big but they’re a lot more vocal here, I think it’s just a culture thing.

“It’s quite like tribalism around here in terms of how towns get behind their teams, it’s a bit different in Australia.

“I love the passion, love the enthusiasm but we’ve just got to give them something to cheer about this year which is on us as a playing group.”

Warrington open up their pre-season on February 4th against Leigh Leopards for Ben Currie’s testimonial before they open the Super League on Thursday 16th February when they face Leeds Rhinos.
