One-time garbage collector Matt King stamped his mark on the English Super League straight away on Sunday with a solo try in his debut for Warrington.

The former Melbourne Storm centre made sure he left none of his trademark pace and strength at home and quickly became a favourite in front of around 6,500 fans at Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Snatching the ball in the air before getting across the try line, the lanky Australian who is on a three-year deal with the Wolves, described his new surroundings as a ‘better spectacle for fans.’

It’s fun, it’s a little bit different to what I’m used to,” he told SuperLeague.co.uk.

“In Australia we’re a little bit more focused on our defence but over here there’s a definite emphasis on attack.

“That suits my game and I think I’ll enjoy it.“

His opening efforts along with that of fellow Aussie Michael Monaghan clearly impressed new coach Paul Cullen.

"It was a great chance for the young players to get some more game time, and the new guys slotted in quite sweetly,” Cullen told Warrington.com after winning his second pre-season trial.

King won’t have to wait very long to catch up with his former Victorian teammates who fly over to play Leeds Rhinos in the World Club Challenge on February 29 at Elland Road in Leeds. - Read More, Here
