Warrington Wolves have signed two former NRL stars and Australian internationals in the shape of Josh McGuire and Paul Vaughan.
The latter, speaking to Sky Sports, has explained why he made the move.
“I think it was the right time,” Vaughan said of the move to Warrington. “I was happy with my career in the NRL, and I was extremely lucky to play for as long as I did with the teams I did, so I just thought I’d like to try something new.
“I achieved everything over there I set out to do, and I wanted to come here and experience a new game and test myself against the players here.
“It’s definitely a bit of a lifestyle change coming from the beaches in the south of Sydney, but me and my family have come with an open mind. We love it here, it’s really beautiful, so it’s been a really good change so far.”
A former St Helens man also played a hey role in his former Canterbury teammate Luke Thompson:
“He was pretty biased, which is understandable, I had a fair few conversations with Thommo and he was really helpful with his advice and what he passed on.
“He was obviously at Saints and they’re a pretty strong club. You want to come up against those strong clubs and see how you go, so it’s pretty exciting.”
