Hard work the key for King

Matt King hopes that good old fashioned hard work will be the key to getting him through the season ahead at South Sydney Rabbitohs.

King, 31, has returned Down Under for the 2012 season after spending four successful seasons in Super League with Warrington Wolves, signing a three-year deal.

He said: “I’ve got a lot of faith in the amount of hard work I’m going to be putting in over the next few months. I know the more hard work I put in the easier the season will be.”

But King is aware of the challenge he faces if he wishes to cement a place in the Rabbitohs centres, and he spoke of his adoration for new team-mate, Greg Inglis.

“I’ve got a pretty tough job to try and knock off Greg Inglis and Dylan Farrell out of the centres here at Souths.

“He (Inglis) is without doubt the most naturally talented player I’ve ever played with. Greg is a superstar and to play with him again is a blessing really.”

King, who enjoyed back-to-back Challenge Cup success during his time at Warrington, played with Inglis at Melbourne Storm.

He added: “Coming back to the NRL is nerve wracking. It is without doubt the most premier rugby league competition in the world, and coming to such a great club with a strong history – nervous is probably a good way to put it.”
