Brent Grose InterviewPicking up a brace of tries in the first round of Super League, to add to his pre-season haul, new boy Brent Grose is looking forward to the challenges of a new season.BRENT, YOU HAVE ALREADY MADE A BIG IMPACT ON THE FANS HERE. HOW ARE YOU ENJOYING LIFE AT WARRINGTON?Everyone has been great, and really helped me to settle in very quickly. I had heard a lot about English supporters, which was one of the key factors in bringing me over, and I haven't been disappointed. The Warrington fans have been incredibly friendly and supportive, and hopefully I will be able to repay them over the months and years.WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO ENGLAND IN THE FIRST PLACE?I had spent a season with Souths, after moving on from Cronulla, and was their top scorer with nine tries last year. But when the offer came in from Warrington I felt it was too good to turn down. I had always wanted to play in England, if maybe not quite as early as I have, but was keen to come over when I could still offer a lot rather than being at the end of my career.FROM WHAT YOU HAVE SEEN OF THE ENGLISH GAME, HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM THAT DOWN UNDER?I have to say that the training at Warrington is as good as any I have ever had in my career. There is certainly a lot of talent in Super League and I honestly don't think there is much between the Australian and English competitions. I believe it could be a mental thing as much as anything - they should just go out and play, rather than thinking they are beaten before they do, which could have been the case in previous seasons.
