Wolves Arrive In Oz
Warrington Wolves have arrived in Sydney ahead of their pre-season training camp which will culminate in a trial match against South Sydney Rabbitohs at the Australian Technology Park Performance Centre at Redfern Oval on Saturday 28 January at 6pm.
Speaking in Australia Wolves' Head of Coaching and Rugby Tony Smith said: "We usually go on a warm weather camp somewhere in the world and we've come a bit further this time. Our owner (Simon Moran) came to Australia last year and was blown away by the Rugby League coverage. He'd like to promote our name, the Warrington Wolves, and promote it in the heartland of Rugby League in this country."
Tony added on the game against the Rabbitohs: "It will be a good test for us. We'll be playing a strong side and this is our only warm-up game before our competition starts so we're going to put out a really strong team and I think we'll put on a good display as well. We've got a pretty talented team."
Captain Adrian Morley says he is looking forward to meeting up with Matt King and the Burgess Brothers on the trip, as well as enjoying the Australian sunshine.
"We're here for three weeks so hopefully we'll all get used to it in that time," Morley said of the warmer weather.
"We are looking forward to playing the Rabbitohs out here. There's a bit of a Super League feel to the team with the Burgess Brothers, and obviously Matt King was out team mate last year, so it should be interesting.
"When I played here in the World Cup in '08 I thought that was the last time I would get to play in Australia, but I love the place and I'm really I happy I get the chance to come out here on this tour and play here again.
Warrington Wolves will play the Rabbitohs at the Australian Technology Park Performance Centre at Redfern Oval on Saturday 28 January at 6pm.
