Warrington Wolves boss Daryl Powell set to make another major signing

Warrington Wolves are set to make another major signing as Daryl Powell rebuilds his squad with a Grand Final tilt in mind for 2023.

The struggles of Powell and the Wolves have been well documented in 2022 with the Cheshire club sitting outside the Super League play-offs and nearer relegation.

Warrington are just four points in front of Wakefield Trinity and Toulouse Olympique who occupy the bottom two spots in the top flight, but Powell is keen for a big overhaul of his squad.

Some of those that have joined include former Wests forward Thomas Mikaele, Catalans Dragons pair sam Kasiano and Gil Dudson, Wigan Warriors starlet Matty Nicholson and Canterbury Bulldogs star Paul Vaughan.

But, another name that has yet to have been revealed is St George Illawarra Dragons star Josh McGuire who is set to pen a deal with Powell’s side for 2023 and beyond.

McGuire began his career at Brisbane Broncos, registering almost 200 appearances before moving to the North Queensland Cowboys in 2019.

Another 38 appearances later and 32-year-old McGuire joined St George where he has been for two seasons, but he has been told that he should find another club for next year.

And, Fox Sports has now revealed that McGuire will be one of those leaving the Dragons as the NRL club tries to create wiggle room in its salary cap.

The Dragons salary cap has not been touched on enough,” Dave Riccio said on SEN.

“They haven’t bought anyone for next year and they haven’t signed a player for next season.

“Their salary cap is so tight (and) there’s not a lot of wiggle room.

“They have huge money tied up in Jack de Belin, huge money tied up in Zac Lomax and Ben Hunt obviously.

“We will see a player clean-out at the end of the year just to try and alleviate some cap space.

“It’s very difficult to change results when you can’t replenish the roster and that’s the situation going forward for the Dragons.”
