Clark in a better frame of mind after a difficult year at Warrington

Warrington hooker Daryl Clark has admitted he is in a better state of mind following an indifferent opening year to his Wolves career.

Clark failed to replicate the form that earned him a high-profile move from Castleford to Warrington as the Wolves also endured a frustrating 2015 season.

Although they suffered a shock defeat to Huddersfield last week, Warrington remain top of Super League, with their early-season results coinciding with Clark’s improving performances.

But the 2014 Man of Steel admitted that adapting to life at the Halliwell Jones Stadium proved to be difficult.

“It was a bit of a disappointment last year,” he conceded.

“It was a new environment, a different team and I had to move away from home, so I think all of that might have had an effect on me. But I feel a lot better this year and more settled and I’m playing some better rugby and getting back some good form.

“To start well this year as a team and individually is pretty good and I’m happy with where I’m at.”

Despite his impressive displays, the 23-year-old still believes he is short of replicating the performances that won him the Man of Steel award.

“My performances have been okay this year but I know I’m still quite a bit away from what I can do. Hopefully I can just keep on improving week on week and sooner rather than later you will see more of those performances from that year at Castleford.”
