Wakefield Trinity were in a bit of strife in the off-season following a troublesome 2021 Super League campaign.
There was no head coach announcement and no coaching staff to go with it for most of the off-season.
That was until, of course, interim head coach Willie Poching was given the reins on a full-time basis.
However, for rampaging prop David Fifita – who is entering the last year of his Trinity contract – the uncertainty surrounding who would be given the job on a permanent basis wasn’t beneficial.
“It’s good to finally know what we have from the start of per season,” Fifita told BBC Radio Leeds.
“We went through the whole off-season not knowing who our coaching staff and conditioners were.
“Normally you get programs over the off-season and they weren’t coming so we had to take it upon ourselves to keep ourselves in good health.”
Fifita also revealed what he did to keep himself in shape, as well as detailing his impression of the new regime.
“I kept my body in shape by doing a lot of walking whilst travelling – we went on holiday to Greece and Cyprus with the family.
“I can see where the coaching staff is coming from now.”
