Wigan Warriors star backs himself to play “top footy” in the NRL

Two Super League stars are headed to the NRL in 2024.

That’s because yesterday it was confirmed that Huddersfield Giants’ Will Pryce and Wigan Warriors’ Kai Pearce-Paul would be joining Newcastle Knights in 12 month’s time.

They have both signed two year deals with the Knights and are hoping to have a big impact on the club and prove they can match the best of the best down under.

That’s the aim of Wigan star Pearce-Paul who is backing himself to play “top footy” in the NRL.

“I back myself. I back myself to give it my all and adapt. I can pick things up pretty quickly. I am sure I will be OK.

“It is never going to be easy. The NRL is the top footy in the world and I know what to expect. I will just give it my all.”

The Knights certainly have the perfect blueprint for his development having developed Huddersfield Giants youngster Dom Young into a top winger during his time there.

He is now an England star scoring nine tries in the Rugby League World Cup playing alongside Pearce-Paul in the clash against Greece at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane.

It stands to reason that Pearce-Paul and Pryce can develop in the same way.
