The aim of any new player at a club, is to have a big impact on the club they are joining especially when you’re coming from the NRL to Super League.
That’s the aim of 2017 Rugby League World Cup winner Josh McGuire as he joins Warrington Wolves ahead of 2023.
The forward wants to have a similar impact on the club as Adrian Morley when the former Leeds Rhinos joined the Wolves after a hugely successful spell with the Sydney Roosters in the NRL/
Speaking to Sky Sports, McGuire opened up on admiring Morley growing up.
“Moz was probably one of my favourite players growing up,” McGuire said. “I don’t know about emulating what he’s done in the game because he’s a special player and, in my opinion, probably one of the greatest modern-era forwards to have played.
“It was the way he went about his business. Everyone talks about what he was like on the field, but off the field he was a very humble, nice man who trained hard and did his job. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a person say a bad word about him from within his football teams.”
Ultimately McGuire wants to have a big impact at the Halliwell Jones: “If I can come here and have a positive impact on this group and this club, if I can leave this place a better place than it was like when I got here, then that’s a good thing.”
