WARRINGTON Wolves centre Toby King is relishing the chance to learn from Greg Inglis and the competition for places that the Wire’s superstar signing will bring.

While the veteran former Australian international is capable of playing in a number of positions, including fullback and the halves, many fans will be touting GI for a role in the centres.

Wolves are already well stocked in this position, with the likes of Anthony Gelling, Keanan Brand, and Jake Mamo among head coach Steve Price’s other options at present – as well as King.

But the academy graduate is looking forward to one of the greatest players of his generation being thrown into this mix for the 2021 season.

And he is hoping to pick up a few tricks from one of the modern day legends of the game.

The 23-year-old said: “It’s a big coup for the club, and hopefully he can contribute to us winning a Grand Final – it’s definitely going to put bums on seats.

“I’ve watched him since I was a young kid and I’ve always looked up to him, he really is one of the best and to go to training with someone like him every day can only better your game.

“There’s going to be tough competition next year now that we’ve signed one of the best centres in the world, but that’s what you get when you play for a top club.

“You’ve got to keep other people off your spot in the team, which is easier said then done when you’re trying to keep Greg Inglis away from your spot – it will definitely keep everyone on their toes.

Warrington Guardian:

“I’ve got to have the biggest year I can in 2020 and pick up where we left off on the left-hand side – we had a good combination going down that edge, scoring a lot of tries and conceding none so far this season.

“Hopefully I can have a big year and then see what Pricey’s thoughts are for next year.

“Since I came through the academy, there’s always been competition at centre – whether it’s been Ryan Atkins, Chris Bridge, Joel Monaghan or Rhys Evans.

“It’s great for the club and we will thrive off it in training.”
