Tomkins arrives in Auckland to join the Warriors

2:29 pm on 9 December 2013

The Warriors' new signing Sam Tomkins has arrived in Auckland and the Englishman says he's ready for the challenges of the National Rugby League.

Tomkins is here in a promotional capacity ahead of his permanent move in the new year.

The former Wigan fullback says he knows what he's in for, the NRL's a tough challenge and every week's a tough game - unlike the Super League, where there are a few teams you know you can beat.

Tomkins is set to take over the number one jersey from Kiwis fullback Kevin Locke, who played in the World Cup final.
