His Canberra Raiders exit was messy but it is the Warrington Wolves that are the beneficiary with the signing of George Williams.

Williams will join the Wolves immediately, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with the club.

Williams has previously played for Warrington’s rivals in the Wigan Warriors and won two premierships and a World Club Challenge.

The halfback is pleased to be joining Warrington and knows how tough the team plays having played against them several times in the past.

“I’m really excited to have signed for Warrington,” Williams said.

“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.”

Despite the messy ending, Williams was pleased to have tested himself in the NRL and looks forward to slotting into the Warrington setup.

“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,” Williams continued.

“The team has been building nicely this season and I’m just keen and excited now to come in and get started.”

Warrington coach Steve Price praised the signing and wants Williams to constantly push his case and push others to be better.

“We as a club are always on the lookout for quality players and it’s great that we’ve been able to sign a player of George’s calibre to a three-and-a-half-year contract,” said Price.

“He’s a competitive man and an exciting player who has achieved the highest honours in the game here in the English Super League.

“I’m looking for George to add value and apply pressure to our playing squad during the second half of this campaign.”
