Warrington have one quota spot left for 2023 and will likely look to fill it before the start of the season to give their squad some added quality as they look to right the wrongs of 2022.
But how will they use it, the likelihood is in the halves following the departure of Gareth Widdop but which players are currently available that the Wire could sign?
The Wolves were recently linked with Catalans’ Josh Drinkwater after he lost his place in the Dragons’ first choice 17 at the end of last year. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. These rumours may have been dismissed by some but he still would be a handy signing.
On Saturday, we saw how good George Williams looked alongside a creative halfback like Jack Welsby so the signing of creative spark Albert Kelly formerly of Hull FC and Hull KR could be a smart move that adds to the Wolves’ attack in 2023 now that he has been let go of by Brisbane Broncos.
The one has family connections. After all, Cooper Johns is the nephew of former Warrington man Andrew Johns and plays the same position. Looking for a club after being released by Melbourne, it would be great to see him look for some experience in Super League.
