IF Paul Vaughan continues his form from this year into next, Warrington Wolves will have completed an impressive piece of business.

While there is always a guardedness about bringing in players coming to the end of their careers from the NRL, the 31-year-old’s displays in 2022 thus far suggest he has a fair bit left in the tank.

In a Canterbury Bulldogs side that has struggled this year – sitting 13th on the ladder – Vaughan has put in some impressive showings and his stats match up to some of the game’s best forwards.

He ranks fourth in the competition for post-contact metres having made 937 while only six forwards in the competition can top the 2,019 running metres he has made thus far.

Warrington Guardian:

Vaughan is currently averaging 134 running metres per game while his defensive stats also make for impressive reading.

His 442 tackles made ranks him inside the NRL’s top 30 but perhaps more impressively, he has missed just 11 to give him a tackle efficiency rating of 97.6 per cent.

Only seven NRL forwards have made more total carries this year than Vaughan’s 207 while he also ranks sixth highest in the competition for decoy runs (95).
