Warrington Wolves star signing explains why he joined the club

Warrington Wolves have made a number of major signings going into 2023 as they look to bounce back after a difficult season last year as they finished 11th.

In the last two days they have brought in two signings including halfback Josh Drinkwater and the return of former player Matty Russell after spells at Leigh Leopards and Toulouse Olympique.

They have bolstered their pack with signings from Catalans Dragons in the shape of Gild Dudson and Sam Kasiano whilst NRL duo Josh McGuire and Paul Vaughan both of whom are Australian internationals.

Both are now in the UK preparing for the new season and Vaughan spoke to Wire TV about the move: “It’s been an enjoyable experience, I’ve come over with the family living in Stockton Heath which is a beautiful place, just getting our bearings and meeting everyone.

“Pretty excited about what is to come.

“I’ve got two little girls, just trying to do everything we can before Christmas time, seeing the sights and fitting in with the locals.”

He explained that the prospect of a new culture was key to the move: “Yeah it was part of the reason why I moved, I was playing in the NRL for 10 years, I enjoyed my time there. I was pretty lucky with how long I played and for the career I had. I’m pretty honoured and blessed.”

As was his determination to have a taste of Super League: “I was always pretty keen to come over to Super League, the opportunity came up with the Wolves and I was pretty excited about it. I know some of the lads, I’m really excited to be here.”
