Canberra Raiders recruit George Williams has a clear plan: to make the NRL grand finalist even better.
How quickly his former Wigan teammates adapted to the rigours of the NRL only helps the England internationals belief he can do exactly that.
Williams is coming Down Under with the Green Machine's No.7 jersey in his sights.
But he knows it's going to be a tough ask after incumbent halfback Aidan Sezer guided them within seven minutes of a premiership.
Raiders fans can get their first glimpse of him when he runs out for England in the World Cup 9s at Parramatta Stadium on Friday.
The Poms face pool games against Wales, Lebanon and France - although it's a format Williams has never played before.
He thinks it might suit his creative running game, but he doesn't know until he's had a go.
Just like there's an unknown with how he'll make the switch from the English Super League - where he's won two premierships - to the NRL.
But the plan is to help make Ricky Stuart's Green Machine even better than this year's runners-up.
"Hopefully. That's the plan. I'm under no illusions, they're a great team and it's going to take some doing to break into that," Williams told The Canberra Times on Wednesday.
"But I'll be working as hard as I can and I'm just very excited at the opportunity in front of me."
He played alongside John Bateman and Ryan Sutton at Wigan.
They both hit the ground running in the NRL, especially Bateman.
He was a revelation and was named second-rower of the year having scored five tries in 23 games this season.
While Sutton missed out on the grand final, the 24-year-old prop played 20 games in his debut NRL season.
Having played alongside both of them, it fills Williams with confidence he can have a similar impact for the Raiders.
"I've always been excited, but it's nice to see. They're two good friends of mine," he said.
"They were from the same team, but they were lads I'd hang around with daily outside of rugby.
"So it's fantastic for me to see them do so well. I'm looking to do the same thing.
"Obviously it will be a tough task, but I'm looking forward to testing myself."
Williams could get the chance to play alongside former Raiders five-eighth Blake Austin for the Great Britain Lions in their three Tests against Tonga and New Zealand.
Austin's selection has caused a storm in England because he's born and bred in Sydney, but qualifies through his grandmother.
He's had a stunning debut campaign for Warrington in the Super League, scoring 18 tries and setting up another 12 to help the Wolves make the finals.
"He played really well in Super League, he was a nominee for Man of Steel, he was at the top of his running game and he was a great asset for Warrington," Williams said of Austin.
"So he'll be a great asset for England rugby league and Great Britain rugby league."
Williams hoped his running game, for which he's known, would suit nines.
But he felt it would also suit Australia's Kalyn Ponga and Kiwis' Roger Tuivasa-Sheck - two players he'll be cautious of if he comes across them in the knockout stages.
"I'd like to think [it suits me]. There's a lot more one-on-ones so I think it benefits the attacker, but the defence is under the pump," Williams said.
"It's something I'm looking forward to.
"I wouldn't say I'm too worried, but I'd be cautious of Ponga and Tuivasa-Sheck.
"They've got good feet. They make it look easy in 13-a-side."
