Danny Kirmond makes bizarre career turn

Three Super League Players Charged

Danny Kirmond was best known for being a long servant for Wakefield Trinity.

The second-rower spent nine seasons at Belle Vue between 2012 and 2020 – and was captain for the majority of those – but, after hanging up his boots following a spell at the York City Knights, Kirmond is now a landlord.

The Sharlston Rugby Club is now home to Kirmond and his partner and, the Yorkshireman spoke exclusively to Serious About Rugby League about how the move came about.

“It came about by accident really, it wasn’t a lifestyle choice,” Kirmond said.

“It’s the Sharlston Rugby Club; it was available, but people were looking at buying it as development, so we bought it.

“We didn’t want it to get knocked down and now we are running it.”

Kirmond earned just one England cap in his time in rugby league, running out for his national side in 2012 against the Exiles.

He made over 300 career appearances, including more than 150 for Wakefield Trinity after beginning his career at Featherstone Rovers.

    I hear that there’s a deal on the table at York for this coming season, so the Boots may well not be hung up. Danny, one more season.
