WOOD BOOST FOR TRINITY IN NEW THREE-YEAR DEAL

Wakefield Trinity 26-12 Warrington Wolves

KYLE WOOD has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal with Wakefield Trinity.

The 28-year-old joined on an initial two-year deal from Super League rivals Huddersfield Giants in November last year.

He has since scored three tries in 25 appearances at hooker or scrum-half in his second stint at Belle Vue – after a year with the West Yorkshire club in 2012.

Wood has also played for Doncaster and Sheffield Eagles as well as having loan spells with Batley Bulldogs and Castleford Tigers after coming through the Trinity Academy system.

The new deal will see him in the red, white and blue until 2020.

He said: “I am really happy with the new deal. We had a pretty good season last year, a couple of players have signed her again and I want to be a part of the club.

“We can definitely build on what we did last year and have an even better season.”

Head coach Chris Chester added: “I am thrilled that Kyle has extended his stay with us for a further three years, he had an exceptional season for us last year.

“I am looking forward to watch him build a partnership with Tyler (Randell) over next season and see him go from strength to strength.”
