Warrington Wolves signing admits his exit from former club didn’t go the way he wanted

Warrington Wolves have made a number of major signings for the 2023 season.

They have reinforced their pack with Catalans Dragons duo Gil Dudson and Sam Kasiano as well as NRL duo and former Australian internationals Paul Vaughan and Josh McGuire.

They have also brought back former Leigh Leopards man Matty Russell back to the club but perhaps their most important signing was halfback Josh Drinkwater from Catalans who has opened up on how his Dragons exit was disappointing.

“I got dropped and didn’t play the play-off semi-final,” he told BBC Radio Merseyside.

“The coach decided I wouldn’t be there any more and I’d move on. It’s a bit disappointing with the way it happened and the timing of it.

“But I do understand rugby league is a business and they made a business decision to move me on.”

He is now backing himself to bring the best out of George Williams:

“George is at his best when he’s running the footy. The way we’ll play is that I’ll take control of the team and free George up to float around both sides of the field and not pigeonhole him in anything. He can just play what he sees.

“We saw when he played for England in the World Cup, when he ran the footy, that’s when he’s at his best.

“I’m really looking forward to playing alongside him. He’s a really dangerous player, and strong runner of the ball, and that’s what I’ll encourage him to do.”
