Warrington forward Chris Hill says he is surprised how quickly he has adapted to life in Super League.

The 25-year-old describes his own improvement as being 'ahead of schedule' but admits he is still a long way short of becoming the finished article.

During his debut season, Hill collected a Challenge Cup winners' medal, appeared in a Grand Final and also played for England.

He joined Wolves from Championship club Leigh in the autumn of 2011 and has now made 33 Super League appearances.

"Obviously, I wanted to be in this position, but if I was to be level-headed about it I would have said that I would have got only a few games last year and 2013 would have been my breakthrough season."

Hill told the Warrington Guardian: "I am well ahead of where I thought I would be after 12 months in the top flight.

"Obviously, I wanted to be in this position, but if I was to be level-headed about it I would have said that I would have got only a few games last year and 2013 would have been my breakthrough season.

"But I just want to look forward. I am not one for thinking about how well I have done.

"If anything I'm more likely to look back at the negatives from last year, because that is how you get better.

"I know I had a half-decent year, but there are bits of my game I can improve and that is what I need to concentrate on."

As for carrying-on in 2013 where he left off last year, he added: "I don't feel any pressure. I will just go out there and play my game.

"I am approaching things in exactly the same way. I've knuckled down in pre-season and will really rip in when we get started."
