Chris Green gives honest assessment of Wakefield departure

A wind of change is sweeping through Belle Vue at the moment.

The club have changed their logo and produced a radical new kit in the last week as they prepare for 2022. They’ve also secured a few smart signings in the shape of Lee Gaskell, Tom Lineham and Liam Hood leading many to believe that Trinity could push for play-off rugby next term.

Of course, a pre-requisite of new signings is that some of the current squad must move on and that’s been true as well with Trinity saying farewell to a number players including prop Chris Green.

The former Hull FC forward joined the club on loan in 2019 after helping the Black and Whites to back-to-back Challenge Cup trophies in 2016 and 2017.

He settled in nicely and joined the club permanently in 2020 after helping the club fend of relegation. But, having seen out his two-year deal, the 31-year-old is set for pastures new in 2022.

Despite a strong finish to the campaign in which he was trusted to start ahead of the likes of David Fifita and Tinirau Arona, the veteran has been let go and he took to social media to give his honest opinion of the club and his departure.

He said: “I also want to place on record, the lads and fans at Wakefield Trinity have been superb and you deserve some success in some form, which should come your way next year. You deserve it staying throughout thick and thin, all the best.”

The prop re-joins the man who brought him to Wakefield in the first place, Chris Chester, next season at Leigh as the Centurions look to bounce straight back into the top flight.

    Wakefield is a team I have always admired the players are loyal and the owner is a rugby fan and cares about the game he may not have deep pockets like some owners but as the club at heart. Not every club can have the money Saints have.
