Familiar surroundings for Asotasi

New Warrington signing Roy Asotasi enjoyed his first training session with the Wolves at the home of his former club, South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The Wolves are Down Under for a pre-season camp, and visited the NRL side on Friday for a training session, and have further meet ups planned with Sydney Roosters and the Sydney Swans AFL team.

It meant familiar surroundings for Asotasi, 32, in what was his first full training session with his new club.

He said: “It was good. I probably wasn’t really looking forward to coming to Redfern for my first training session (with Warrington) but it’s always great to be here and enjoy the training with the new squad and mix with the old squad, so I had a good time.

“It felt weird walking in and having to turn left inside the tunnel. I was waiting for my protein shake – which wasn’t there – and I realised I was with Warrington.

“It was good to see some old faces and I enjoyed the training session; you’ve got to enjoy these moments especially with the sun; you don’t get much of that in the UK!”

The teams did a combined warm up, fitness drills and a couple of 13-aside opposed games in 20-minute blocks.

Asotasi, a former New Zealand and Samoa international, agreed a two-year deal with the Wolves back in July.
