If anyone is well placed to speak on the transformation at Warrington Wolves in 2023, it is Kyle Amor.
The prop joined Warrington on loan last year and has since described the environment as “toxic.”
However, he said on The Last Tackle podcast that he is not surprised by the success Warrington are having at the start of the 2023 season:
“I’m not surprised, seven from seven probably has surprised me. There’s no doubt about it that the outside backs they had last year are all quality players, they just needed something to play off.”
He went on to say that the fact they signed him last year showed how difficult things were:
“The fact they brought a 35-year-old in towards the end of last season pretty much tells you where the club were are that point.”
Meanwhile, another former Warrington man, Kevin Brown said of the Wolves:
“I actually think in a weird way that last year was a good thing. I think if you really want change, you have to change a lot and because they were so poor last year they’re stripped everything back.
“They went even harder in the recruitment and they were changing everything. I think even the coach has changed his style and they just look happy.
“I think the biggest change is that’s as close as I’ve seen Warrington as a group for a long long time.
“They way they’re playing now, they’ve got the pack that can go through the middle but then George Williams is in career best form. I think he’s got some able lads around him now with Matt Dufty and the pace of Matty Ashton on the wing.
“It just looks like a very balanced well-oiled machine at the minute.”
