WARRINGTON Wolves have snapped up a talented teenage Australian who has been impressing on a one year scholarship from Lymm High School.
Sam Caslick, 17, has signed a one-year part-time contract with the Wolves.
Sam was born in Brisbane, Australia, to an Australian father and British mother, and is looking to challenge himself at Rugby League whilst over in England. He is set to play in the stand off or scrum half position.
He said: “I’m looking forward to playing in a new environment. I’ve always wanted to come over and play in England ever since I was a little kid. I just want to keep going with my rugby career as far as I can.”
Sam came over at the end of October and is settling in really well with both coaches and players.
Gary Chambers, under 18s coach, said that Sam made an immediate impression.
“Sam has made such an impact on the group because of his attitude, skill and personality. He is a very determined lad and wants to learn, putting 100% into everything. These are the traits we look for in all players that we sign.”
John Bastian, Director of Youth Development, reiterated this adding: “Sam’s work ethic has impressed all coaches and conditioners. We feel with hard work and some education he could be a bright talent at Warrington in the future.”
