Is This Actually Warrington's Year?

The words "it's our year" have become somewhat of a running joke in Rugby League, a slogan of a Warrington team that have failed to deliver on all the potential they hold.

Don't get me wrong, Warrignton have consistently appeared in finals, semi-finals and finished Super League strongly (with the exception of last year). They are a great side with some fantastic players, but they consistently fall short of silverware, 2012's challenge cup win was the last time they lifted a trophy off the back of a final, they did win the league leaders shield in 2016 but would fall short in the Grand Final.

Let's be honest, Warrington want the Grand Final win more than anything, the Super League trophy has escaped their grasp on multiple occasions. 3 times to be exact, 2012, 2013 and 2016, were the years in question, leading Warrington fans scratching their heads as to when the long wait for a Super League trophy will finally enter the Halliwell Jones trophy cabinet.

Recruitment hasn't just meant a turnover of players at the Wolves, they have now parted company with Tony Smith, easily the most successful Warrington coach in the Super League era, bringing in Steve Price as Head Coach and Andrew Henderson as his Assistant Coach, in an effort to change their playing style.

While Warrington have lost some very good players this year, the likes of; Kurt Gidley, Andre Savelio and Brad Dwyer, as well as a few more notable mentions, they have also recruited well. Tyrone Roberts is a massive signing, along with Bryson Goodwin and Ben Murdoch-Masilla, who will really bolster the Wolves' chances of a Super League trophy.

Warringinton will look to improve on last year's disappointing year which would see them finish outside of the 8 and force them to play in the qualifiers instead, but with the talent they have procured, plus the players they have retained, this one could actually really be Warrington's year.
