Jon Clarke Looks for 50With his 50th game in a Warrington shirt this weekend, hooker Jon Clarke returns to his old club of London Broncos.JON THIS SEASON YOU ARE ONE OF THE LONGEST SERVING PLAYERS AT THE WOLVES JOINING IN SUPER LEAGUE VI, WHAT CHANGES HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED?Changes at the club, playing wise the overall thing is professional, a lot more direction in everything we do. Cul has got us confident in our own ability and we all believe that we can achieve more success on the field. Off the field there is a positive vibe, the whole club seems to be a lot more professional in their approach to the game.THIS WEEKEND YOU ARE RETURNING TO YOUR FORMER CLUB LONDON BRONCOS, WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU HAVE OF YOUR TIME WITH THEM?Great memories of London, we had some good victories against some big clubs, a club that is very much like this club very good team spirit, the staff are great everyone pulls together because they are separated from the rest of the world. Played with some of the game's greats in their time Jim Dymock, Richie Barnett and Jason Hetherington. Who are also some of the greatest blokes off the field.THIS SEASON YOU HAVE COMPETITION FOR THE HOOKING SPOT FROM YOUNG MARK GLEESON, HAS THIS MADE TRAINING MORE COMPETITIVE?Yes, I think in my position it has, with Glees pushing me. Cul has recruited players for all positions to make more competition in the side. Competition makes it more of an exciting environment to work in, because it brings the best out in the players, which is beneficial to the team.PJ HEALTH AND FITNESS CONSULTANTS, WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT?Myself and Paul Darbyshire have created a business to offer a whole range of health and fitness components to clients, these include personal training, massage, sports coaching and elite athlete training. There is a big scope in the market for personal training and people are becoming more conscious about health, fitness and diet and we hope to provide the best service for them.WHAT ARE YOUR AMBITIONS FOR THIS SEASON, THE FINAL ONE AT WILDERSPOOL?On a personal note, I only really had one goal was to play consistently well for Warrington every week. If I do that then the likes of Lancashire will follow on from that. I think that is how you get representative honours is by playing consistently. Obviously to try and have some sort of success in the final year at Wilderspool, which will take us nicely into the new stadium.
