Roberts talks up Wire respect

Warrington half-back Tyrone Roberts claims the respect coach Steve Price gave him was a big reason behind his move to the Wolves.

Having impressed in the NRL with Gold Coast, Roberts decided to make the big move to the UK to start his career in Super League with Warrington.

The 26-year-old is looking forward to the new challenge and says Price was a big factor behind him signing a three-year deal at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

He told League Express: “I said to myself that last year was the best year of my career football-wise. But it’s not about the footy at times, it’s about the respect you get from a club, and Steve and Warrington certainly made me feel wanted.

“As a player you want to be respected and wanted, and they gave me and my family the opportunity to experience England and Super League. It doesn’t matter who I’m playing for, I just want to be happy.

“Once I’d made the decision, I spoke with Steve and he gave me the rundown of the club and where he wanted it to go. He respected me as a person and a player, he’s seen me play and he knows I can play, and I look forward to linking up with him over here.”
