Kyle Evans only started playing rugby league in the summer as the former rugby union winger joined Wakefield Trinity mid-season making a try scoring debut.
After an impressive start to life in the sport, Evans was called up to the Wales squad and made a real impression especially against one of the tournament favourites Tonga with some bone crunching defence and a superb try.
That performance had many questioning why Wakefield hadn’t given him a new deal for 2023 including Wales boss John Kear.
The winger has all the qualities a modern winger needs but won’t be staying at Belle Vue and he revealed why exclusively to Serious About Rugby League:
“When I went to Wakefield I was hoping for them to resign me but sadly that didn’t happen. The season ended and I never heard anything back after that.”
Despite that, he is appreciative of the club for giving him an oppportunity:
“However, I’m appreciative of the opportunity they gave me, as that move to the club is what has given me my chance playing in rugby league and led me onto playing in the World Cup which has all been a dream come true.
“I needed to play well in the World Cup for a chance to get signed up by clubs, and I was happy with the performances I did put in.
“I was just getting started and warmed up looking towards another season in rugby league, and I know I’ve got a lot left to give.”
