Trent Waterhouse picked the perfect time to arrive at Warrington Wolves
TRENT Waterhouse even accepts himself that his move from Australia could not have gone better in his debut Super League season.
“It ticked all the boxes I was looking for with being a great bunch of blokes, a great club, great coaching staff and a passionate town,” he said.
“But knowing all that, to have won the Challenge Cup and being in the club’s first Grand Final could not have been scripted better.”
And the former Australia back rower, who scored two tries in the impressive semi-final defeat of St Helens at Langtree Park, has reissued the message that worked for the team at Langtree Park - success in the play-offs includes the players keeping themselves chilled out.
He learned that from his only previous Grand Final in Australia in 2003, when Penrith Panthers defeated Adrian Morley’s Sydney Roosters.
“I was only young then but I remember that I really enjoyed the entire week,” he said.
“There wasn’t too much tension, everyone was just enjoying it and looking to stay relaxed, soak it all up, enjoy the moment and not to get overawed by it.
“And I think at Warrington we play our best footy when we do stay relaxed and pretty composed.
“In that second half at St Helens we enjoyed it and I think it showed in our performance.”
