Roberts wants to deliver for Warrington

Marquee signing Tyrone Roberts wants to build on a fine year in the NRL by delivering success to his new club Warrington.

Roberts, 26, has made the switch to Super League on a three-year deal after what some considered his best ever year in the NRL with Gold Coast Titans.

He said: “A lot of people were surprised I made the move. It doesn’t matter where I play footy as long as I’m happy.

“Warrington respected me. Steve, the club, they respected me as a player and he has seen the way I play. It was a tough decision to make, you’ve got to make sure it’s the right decision but at the end of all the talk, it was an easy decision to make.

“I can’t wait to give the fans what they want and hopefully they can get the best out of me like the Titans did last year.

“Being a half-back you have the responsibility to give the fans what they want because they expect from me, I guess it’s the challenge I’m willing to accept.

“I don’t know what to expect myself sometimes. I just want to go out there and play my footy.

“I want to make sure I get a lot of tries that’s for sure! I heard there’s more opportunity over here but then as much as you want to score tries you need to defend them as well.

“With Steve and the structure it’s been great what he’s teaching us and hopefully we’ll give the fans what they want.”

Roberts travelled to the UK to get used to his new surroundings before going back home and then returning with his family for pre-season.

He had to wait until the New Year to get to work with some of his new team-mates, the likes of Kevin Brown, Ben Currie and Chris Hill being allowed extra time off following their World Cup exploits.
