Recruitment guru Peter Mulholland reveals the Canberra Raiders' plans for new signing George Williams

The Canberra Raiders have successfully transformed Englishmen like John Bateman into NRL stars, but what are their plans for new half recruit George Williams?

“George can organise and structure a game but both him and Jack Wighton ask questions. He just needs to learn that little bit of game management, I never doubt his running game," Peter Mulholland says.

Reading into what Mulholland says there he rated Williams and Sezer pretty similarly defensively and kicking but feels Sezer may be more developed as a game manager + George will ask more questions of a defence when running. Nothing too new there.

Interesting was that they feel Williams has the potential to do more than he was asked at Wigan. He wants him to grow into game management. That could be a tough ask for a new half. Still, Muholland has been spot on so far.

I think Hodgson actually had a bit of say in the decision. I remember a game or two during the season where he made a few comments about our halves needing to step up and control the games better.

Given that Wighton had a much higher number of gets of the halves in 2019 it may not be as big an issue. Williams will get his chance to ease into the role.

Canberra Raiders recruit George Williams to follow John Bateman

George Williams says he wants to follow in the footsteps of John Bateman.

"I've always wanted to come test myself, I said from pretty young age if I ever had the chance to do it I would - the NRL is the best competition in the world," Williams said. "Batey last year was unbelievable wasn't he and if I could do something like that then that would be pretty unbelievable but I'll just keep my head low and work hard."

Canberra Raiders recruit George Williams steps out of his comfort zone

George Williams knew he was out of his comfort zone the moment he stepped off the plane.

"I landed on Friday morning and it was 42 degrees or something like that, so a bit different to back home," the Canberra Raiders import said.

Williams puts faith in self-belief and Bateman blueprint

Raiders recruit George Williams intends to "do great things" in the NRL and he need look no further than fellow Englishman John Bateman for the blueprint.

"I'm under no illusions... I've got to find my feet first and I'm not presuming I'm picked round one," Williams said. "I've got to work hard, I've got six-to-eight weeks now to prove I'm good enough to play round one and that's what I'll be doing."
