Matt Davis has become one of Warrington Wolves’ most improved players.
After moving to the Halliwell Jones in 2019, Davis was loaned out to the London Broncos and Rochdale Hornets before working his way into Steve Price’s thinking towards the back end of that season.
Having been given an extended shot in the Wolves’ side the Leicestershire-born 25-year-old thoroughly impressed, starring in Warrington’s Challenge Cup success over St Helens in 2019.
Davis’ good form continued into 2020 and he signed a new two-year deal in December last year.
And, Davis has revealed just what it was like to work under former boss Price.
“Pricey was a good coach to player under, I enjoyed my three years working with him.
“I enjoyed it most of all in my last year where I felt he had the most trust in me to go out and deliver a good performance.”
The Warrington forward is, however, looking forward to starting under incoming head coach Daryl Powell after the ex-Castleford Tigers boss was confirmed as the Wolves’ new man.
Powell ended an eight-and-a-half year allegiance with the Tigers, penning a deal at the Halliwell Jones instead.
“I’m buzzing for Powelly to come in, I’ve already had a good chat with him and there’s a lot of ways he wants to improve my game.
“I’m looking forward to pre season, it’ll be different to the past three years.
“So it’ll be an exciting change for the boys and hopefully we all start fresh and rip in together.”
