Williams’ next club announces his capture

Following Wigan’s announcement last night that half-back George Williams will leave the club at the end of the season, his new employer has confirmed his signing on a three-year deal.

Canberra Raiders have announced that Williams will join England team-mates Elliot Whitehead, Josh Hodgson, John Bateman and Ryan Sutton at the club.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said: “George is an experienced half who joins us after a very successful career with Wigan in the Super League.

“The club’s had success in recent times in recruiting proven performers from the Super League and we believe George will fit into our system like others have.

“The club would like to wish George all the best for the remainder of the season with Wigan and we look forward to him joining us for pre-season training.”
