Steve Price plays down prospect of Warrington signing George Williams

Warrington coach Steve Price has played down the prospect of Warrington making a short-term move for England half-back George Williams following his sudden release by Canberra Raiders.

Williams, 26, is a free agent after cutting short his stay in the NRL and, although his former club Wigan have first refusal, he is expected to be in big demand.

“I haven’t even contemplated that,” Price said. “I’m really happy with the players I’ve got in my squad.

“He’s a great player and he’s had a fantastic couple of years at Canberra Raiders. I don’t know all the circumstances behind it but he’s certainly a quality player.”

Meanwhile, ambitious Championship club Newcastle Thunder have made an audacious bid to sign Williams.
