Matt King not thinking about Super League title

Warrington centre Matt King says his team cannot be complacent in their pursuit of the Super League title.

The Wolves last won a league trophy in 1955, and despite their good campaign so far, the 30-year-old says there is a long way to go.

"It would be nice to finish top of the pile," King told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"In saying that, we don't want to concentrate on that [the title]. If we take it week-by-week, the top of the table will look after itself."

King added: "We'll be there or there abouts. We'll just plug along week to week worrying about ourselves and we'll be OK."

It has been a big few weeks for King, as he missed out on playing for the Exiles against England earlier this month due to the birth of his first child.

The Australian has also been playing out of position for Warrington recently as a second-row forward, due to injuries in the Wolves squad, but is happy to help the team.

"We were a bit short in the back row, so Smithy [coach Tony Smith] asked me to do a job for the team and I was happy to do it," King continued.

"In saying that I really enjoyed it and I got the ball in my hands a bit more often. But it was the defensive side of the game I really liked.

"Mixing it with the big boys was fun. But I belong out wide scoring all the tries and glory hunting!

"Anyone in our squad at the moment would be happy to a job if Smithy asked them to do it, and that's just where I've found myself in the last few weeks."
