Warrington have completed the signing of rugby union wing Taylor Prell after he scored four tries in a trial match for the club's reserves.
The 20-year-old winger, who was a member of England Under-18s' European Championship-winning team, has joined the Super League club from Championship club Yorkshire Carnegie on a two-year contract.
Warrington head coach Tony Smith said: "We've identified Taylor as a really strong candidate for a Super League position.
"He's had one trial game for us against Hull in the reserves where he scored four tries but it's not only that, it's the way he's applied himself in training and in video sessions.
"He's shown on the training park that he's able to pick up our game - which is a big ask for someone who's played another sport. He's shown enough in the time he's been with us to suggest that he's going to be a very good Super League player of the future."
Prell added: "I've always enjoyed watching rugby league and, with my contract being up, I thought it was an opportunity to have a switch of codes."
