Kyle Wood had a brilliant Super League career with Huddersfield Giants and Wakefield Trinity and that is part of the reason why he is celebrating a testimonial.
However, Wood has also spent the last season with Halifax Panthers and speaking exclusively to Serious About Rugby League, Wood talked up their chances of making their way to Super League in the coming years.
He said: “The club are Halifax is definitely going places, we have a new board so we’re building from the top to the bottom. We’re getting good players in, we already had good young players there that have been at the club for years.
“They’re carrying on building, there’s a good group there and that’s going to get better and better so hopefully they’ll be in a potential to grow and get that Super League place in the years to come.
“They’ve got the structures there ready to go, a good ground, a new board and a coach with ambitions to be there and players who do as well.
“It’s about building it all together and get that place.”
The Panthers made a flurry of signings ahead of 2022 including Wood. They have been less active this year but after their strong 2022 they just needed a few signings such as World Cup star Jake Maizen of Italy.
Thus, this should leave them in a good position for next season.
