After a disappointing 2017 campaign, changes are afoot at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. Before the end of the season, coach Tony Smith announced it would be his last season at the helm and the club have appointed his Australian counterpart Steve Price who has left his role as assistant at Cronulla Sharks. His first signing, Bryson Goodwin, has been confirmed as joining from South Sydney Rabbitohs via Leigh and now confirmation that Gold Coast Titans’ half back Tyrone Roberts has put pen to paper.
After a disappointing season, a big name signing to bring in a new era for The Wire was huge and Price and the Wolves have beaten off competition from other NRL teams to bring him in. A player with a reputation as a great goal and place kicker, Roberts has scored 574 points in 138 NRL games for both Newcastle Knights and the Titans. While he may not be a household name in this country, a quick look at his highlights on youtube would definitely show you that he has an ability which will surely grace Super League next year if he hits the ground running.
Having signed a three year contract as a Warrington marquee player, the Wolves will definitely be hoping that he can provide the momentum and quality that has been sorely lacking this season and, along with their highly regarded new coach, can see them fighting again for honours come the business end of the season.
