Andrew Henderson is looking forward to taking the next step in his career after leaving London Broncos to join the Warrington Wolves coaching staff.

As head coach, Henderson led the Broncos to the Super 8s Qualifiers last season, although they failed to gain promotion to the Super League.

My experience at London has given me good grounding for this next step in my career.

He has now opted to take up an offer from the Wolves, who clinched their own top-flight survival in the Qualifiers, with Henderson appointed as assistant to new head coach Steve Price.

And he is excited about the prospect of testing himself at the highest level of the domestic game.

He told his new club's official website: "It is a fantastic opportunity presented to me by Warrington. The club has built a solid infrastructure and superb facilities in recent years.

"I think as a team they had a disappointing year for their standards, but I believe there is some exciting young talent as well some good senior professionals who can lead the team forward.

"My experience at London has given me good grounding for this next step in my career. I feel the time is right for me to move to the next level in this role."

Head coach Price has taken charge of the Wolves following the end of the lengthy tenure of Tony Smith, with the former having previous experience from his time in charge of NRL outfit the St. George Illawarra Dragons.

Warrington can be backed at 7/4 to win the Super League Grand Final next season, while they are available at 4/9 to lift the Challenge Cup.
