WARRINGTON Wolves have swooped for the signing of rising star Matt Davis from London Broncos on a two-year contract from next season until November 2020.
Second rower Davis, 21, is currently at Championship side London Broncos having played his amateur Rugby League at Leicester Storm. He is a highly sought-after player within the game and has caught the eye of many as an upcoming, young talent.
He made his first-team debut for London under the then head coach Andrew Henderson at the 2016 Summer Bash aged 19, and has gone on to make 58 appearances for the Broncos becoming a mainstay, impressing the coaching staff with his on-field performances and his attitude in training.
Head coach Steve Price said: “Matt’s a guy who plays the game tough. He’s a grafter and does all the little things well in the game of Rugby League. He has really impressed me with his attitude and comes with a big rap from Andrew Henderson who coached him at London Broncos. He is only young and has a lot of good football years ahead of him as he becomes more educated in the game.”
Davis added: “I wanted to test myself in a different set up and a different environment and, after talking to Steve Price and Andrew Henderson, Warrington really appealed to me.
“Danny Ward was great here for me when I played academy and Hendo gave me the chance to play first team. I had a good chat with him about a few things and he and Steve Price have a really good vision at Warrington.
“I want to thank Danny and Jamie Langley for their help in making me the player I am now.”
