“They’re not old or past their best” – Warrington Wolves man says new signings could have played NRL for longer

Daryl Powell’s focus in terms of recruitment this year has been on assembling a new pack.

He has signed Gil Dudson and Sam Kasiano from Catalans Dragons and NRL duo Josh McGuire and Paul Vaughan both of whom have represented Australia.

There have been suggestions by some that the Warrington pack is too old for next season but another new signing, halfback Josh Drinkwater, disagrees.

“They’ve played at the highest level for a number of years and the big thing with them is they’re not old or past their best footy,” Drinkwater said to Sky Sports as he went on to say that he believes they could have gone on to play in the NRL for longer but chose to make the switch to Super League in 2023.

“They could have easily played NRL for a lot more years and decided to come to Super League at a younger age.

“As a half-back, one of the things you first look at is your forward pack. This is a team which has signed pretty much a new pack.

“There is a lot of size and I know I’m going to be playing behind a pack that is going to be going forward and not being dominated, which is going to make my life a lot easier.”
