Williams played in the halves alongside fellow Great Britain international Blake Austin in their win at Headingley.

The former Wigan star will be hoping to stake a claim in Shaun Wane’s England squad for this autumn’s World Cup, which will be hosted on home soil. Williams already has 10 England caps to his name and one for Great Britain.

Warrington assistant coach Lee Briers hailed Williams as a “proven winner” after he kicked the winning drop goal.

Briers said: “George is a fabulous signing, a quality player, and the club have invested in him by bringing him here.

“But there’s no pressure on George – he’s a humble kid who wants to work hard and he’s a proven winner.”

Warrington sit third in the Super League table having won 11 from their 15 games so far this campaign. Steve Price’s side have a win rate of 76.67% in 2021.
