Warrington hooker Daryl Clark says that his side are in a good place as they bid to recover from two final losses in 2018.
Despite failing to win silverware last season, the 2014 Man of Steel winner says that 2019 promises to be an exciting year at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Clark loverugbyleague.com: “Obviously it wasn’t a good year getting both finals and finishing fourth compared to the previous year a lot had hanged and improved massive but were all dying to go that one step further and win something.
“We’ve brought in some quality this year with Jason [Clark], Lama Tasi and obviously Blake Austin.
“As a club, Warrington are always trying to make the best signings and improve the team year in, year out. We’re a club with a lot of ambition and the signings prove that we are looking to win stuff.”
Warrington’s number nine insists he has relished the chance to link up with their new marquee man and says that Austin’s calibre and class will undoubtedly shine through.
Clark also hopes that both himself and Austin can put themselves in contention for the Steve Prescott Man of Steel by performing consistently throughout the year.
“It’s always easier for me if he’s making calls and calling the plays,” Clark admitted.
“He is pretty vocal on the field and when you’ve got a half back like that, it’s only going to help you.
“It would be nice to have your name up there at the end of the year but it’s not something I set at the start of the year.
“I’ll just concentrate on getting some good form and playing well, and if I’m doing something right, those things will be there at the end of the year.”
