Warrington Wolves’ new signing to make Daryl Powell’s side a top four Super League side

Warrington Wolves have been one of the most disappointing Super League sides in the past decade in 2022.

Under former Castleford Tigers boss Daryl Powell, the Cheshire club was expected to make it big this season, with many tipping Powell to be an instant success with even a Grand Final mooted.

Unfortunately for Warrington, that has not transpired and instead the Wolves sit second bottom to Toulouse Olympique for what will be their worst-ever Super League finish – not exactly a statistic that people thought would occur.

However, amongst all the negativity has been a number of positive developments. Josh Thewlis and Connor Wrench have become established first-team stars whilst other youngsters such as Leon Hayes, Luke Thomas and Jack Lynch have grabbed their opportunities with both hands when called upon by Powell.

Add into the mix the incredible signing of Canterbury Bulldogs star Matt Dufty and there is a recipe for success coming.

The Australian livewire has been a shining light for Warrington towards the back end of the 2022 season which was evident against Huddersfield Giants yesterday with a four-try display as the Wolves just came up short at the John Smith’s Stadium.

It’s not just his attacking prowess which has shone through though, it’s his attitude and determination to improve those around him which has perhaps impressed most.

And, with a full pre-season under his belt, Dufty could be the man that could propel Warrington back into the play-offs and into a silverware-hunting side once more.

Powell has also brought in the likes of Sam Kasiano, Gil Dudson, Paul Vaughan, Josh McGuire and Thomas Mikaele, whilst Warrington stalwarts such as Mike Cooper, Chris Hill and Josh Charnley have been shown the door.

It’s been a season of trials and tribulations for Wire fans, but Dufty is the hope on which supporters can pin their hopes for much better in 2023.
