Warrington Wolves have made their stance on George Williams very clear in the last 24 hours according to reports down under.
After the ex-Wigan Warriors halfback shone in the Rugby League World Cup with three tries, 13 assists and 101 metres per game, he told Fox League down under to “never write off” a return to the NRL after he left the competition in mid way through 2021 after a strong first year down under.
This led to reports down under that a number of NRL teams were circling the halfback as the NRL struggles for top notch options at number seven.
However, according to the notorious Mole of Wide World of Sports, the Wolves are “unhappy” with the interest from NRL clubs and have issued a “hands off” warning to the NRL clubs interest with Williams still having two years left on his deal.
According to the Mole, Warrington Chief Karl Fitzpatrick said on the matter:
“George still has two years left to run on his contract with Warrington – end of story.
“You don’t sell your best players and we are happy with George and he is happy with us so he is staying right here.”
According to the Mole, the club are unhappy with the interest as he even used the word “angry.”
Williams was very impressive in the World Cup beating the likes of Jahrome Hughes and Nathan Cleary to claim a spot in the Team of the Tournament.
