VIDEO: WARRINGTON Wolves have signed England half-back George Williams on a deal until the end of the 2024 season.
Williams, 26, is a two time Super League winner with Wigan, who he turned down to join the Wolves after being released by Australian side Canberra Raiders in May.
He said: “I’m really excited to have signed for Warrington.
“It’s a club that I’ve had plenty of tough games against in the past and The Halliwell Jones Stadium is a ground that I’ve really enjoyed playing at.
“The boys here at the club that I know from England camps spoke really highly of the organisation and the culture here. There’s some world class talent and some real experience in this group.
“I’m really proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone to go out and test myself in the NRL and I like to think it’s helped me develop my game in the last 18 months which I’m hoping to showcase now here at Warrington.
“The team has been building nicely this season and I’m just keen and excited now to come in and get started.”
Williams already knows new team-mates Gareth Widdop, Chris Hill and Stefan Ratchford from England duty, and has spoken with both current head Steve Price, who leaves the Wolves at the end of the season, and new boss Daryl Powell.
The 26-year-old has been training on his own since leaving the Raiders and not having played for six weeks is unlikely to make his Warrington debut at Hull Kingston Rovers this Sunday.
His debut is more likely to come away to Leigh Centurions on July 22 or possibly even the following week when the Wolves welcome his former club Wigan Warriors to the Halliwell Jones Stadium!
