Clark positive about Super League shake-up

Warrington new boy Daryl Clark believes that the much-heralded revamp of Super League this season will be good for the sport.

With a reduced Super League of 12 teams, who will then compete for a top eight and then a top four spot to make the play-offs at the end of the season, Clark believes that more games will have the right level of intensity.

“I think that’s what Super League needs, to make it a good competition and make it good to watch,” Clark said.

“If anyone can beat anyone, then it makes it a good, close competition, and I think that’s what the fans want.”

Clark is relishing the chance to test himself with the Wolves, after enjoying a fine season last year for Castleford Tigers. He thinks his new club has a good chance of enjoying success, too.

“It’s something a bit different for me, the new surroundings,” he said.

“There’s a lot of new faces, a new challenge, really, so I’m looking forward to getting the season started.

“I obviously had a great year last year, but I’ve got to put that behind me now. It’s been and gone, and it’s a new season.

“I want to repeat some of those performances from last year, though, and hopefully I can pick up where I left off, keep playing well and keep playing some good rugby and do well for the club.

“If you look round the squad, we’ve got some good players and a pretty good team.

“But it’s too early to call. Hopefully we’ll do well, but it’s a long season, and you’ve got to take injuries and stuff into consideration.

“Hopefully if everyone stays fighting fit and plays as well as they can, then we’ll be there or thereabouts.”
