Australia legend Andrew Johns says he has been impressed by the skills and effort on display at Warrington's warm-weather training camp in the Canary Islands.
The former Newcastle and Kangaroo half-back, who played for the Wolves briefly in 2005, has joined up with head coach Tony Smith in order to help his side prepare for the new Super League season.
Johns has spent the last week with Warrington in Tenerife and will continue to work with squad members ahead of Sunday's pre-season friendly at Leigh.
"There's been a lot of progression made over here," said Johns. "The guys have been really enthusiastic and they've really responded to Tony.
"I've been really impressed with them all actually. Fingers crossed they're in for a big year."
Of particular interest to Johns has been the chance to put in some specialist work with the club's half-backs.
"Richie Myler is a young half-back who I think has a huge future if he works hard and trains hard," he said. "He certainly has all the skill.
"I've always rated Lee Briers as a world-class player and he's shown that here.
"There are other guys who have been looking sharp too. Michael Monaghan and Mickey Higham are looking on form.
"The things I've been doing with them they've picked up straight away and it's very rewarding to see that they are taking a lot on board."
Myler is set to make his first appearance for the Wolves at Leigh on Sunday, along with fellow new recruits Ryan Atkins and David Solomona.
