TOBY King's outstanding form this season means Steve Price has had no hesitation in changing the Warrington Wolves team that broke records against Wigan to allow for his return to the centres.

Homegrown teenager Connor Wrench, a stand-out performer in The Wire's biggest ever away win against Wigan on Wednesday, will make way despite pleasing his boss.

“I thought Connor Wrench was outstanding last week," said Price of the 19-year-old.

“He’s only played a couple of games in the first team and he showed glimpses of what he’s like and how he carried himself throughout the pre-season.

“It was great to see him get in open space, create a few line breaks but also to create that try for Ben Currie late in the game which was a class bit of athleticism by Connor.

“So I was really pleased with his output but he’ll lose his spot for Toby King this week.”

King, a leading try scorer for The Wire this season who has missed the last two games because of a knee injury, is expected to re-form his partnership with Tom Lineham on the left edge.

“I thought Toby was playing some really good football leading up to his injury," said Price.

"It’s a shame it happened just before the international game because I’m sure he was desperate to play.

“He had a few niggles to go with it and so it came for him at a good time just to realign his body and freshen up over the last week and a half. He’s raring to go and he’s excited for Monday.”

Price explained what he feels his side benefits from with King's presence.

“His decision-making over on that left edge has been class. Him and Gareth Widdop have been really solid defensively," he said.

“His carries out of yardage are up there and better than anyone I feel.

“He’s got that ability to be able to get that left-arm offload and we can play off his quick play-the-balls too.

“He’s a great asset to our team.

“It was a pretty straightforward decision. Toby has got the runs on the board and has been fantastic for us in the first part of the season.

“But in saying that, we’ve got the utmost confidence to put Connor in whenever we need to because he’s a quality young player and showed last week against a really good team in Wigan Warriors he can handle the occasion.

“I’d never hesitate to give Connor another run because he’s got a very bright future at our football club.”
