Murdoch-Masila set for Warrington arrival

Ben Murdoch-Masila will arrive in England on Monday after leaving Australia to link-up with Warrington.

The Wolves completed a £170,000 move for the second-rower after a fantastic 2017 season, and he will finally link up with Steve Price’s squad after visa paperwork was completed.

Murdoch-Masila enjoyed a fine season at Salford, earning selection to the Super League Dream Team and a call-up to the Tonga squad.

He helped Tonga reach the World Cup semi-final and was an ever-present for the Mate Ma’a.

His performances caught the attention of several NRL clubs, with Murdoch-Masila’s agent revealing he had received interest from clubs Down Under.

However, fears that the 26-year-old would not arrive at the Halliwell Jones Stadium have now been quashed.
