King hoping to fulfil Wembley dream

Warrington forward George King says playing at Wembley in the Challenge Cup final on Saturday is something he has dreamed about since he was a kid.

King, along with his brother Toby, is vying for a spot in the Wire’s 17-man squad for the Cup decider.

The 21-year old has done his chances no harm, having played in nearly every Super League game for Warrington this season.

Off the bench he made 29 tackles on Saturday in the close win over Castleford.

“I’m looking forward to Wembley if I manage to wear the shirt,” King told Love Rugby League.

“It will be a really special occasion, one that I have dreamt as a kid.

“The season been good so far, but with me it’s improving game by game and with it being the back end of the season now everyone is looking for that consistency to play well all the time.

“I have always been confident in knowing what I can do especially in a team with such good players to learn of and play off.”

Warrington edged the Tigers 14-11 in dramatic circumstances thanks to a late try to Jack Hughes.

“It was a top finish by him and good from the team to stay composed and give a never say die attitude,” King said.

“I thought we defended well for a good parts of the game and to keep them to one try was pleasing.

“It was a good close encounter game that’s set us up nicely for the final, because we will be expecting the same from a Hull side that are full of confidence.”
