Have Wakefield Trinity finished their transfer business or could they have one more signing to complete

Wakefield Trinity, unlike most clubs, waited until the end of the season to really get the wheels rolling on their recruitment for 2023 largely because of the mid season signings they made which helped boost their survival hopes last season.

Since the end of last year they have brought in former Warrington Wolves halfback Morgan Smith from Featherstone Rovers, NRL duo Kevin Proctor and Renouf Atoni as well as the arrival of the versatile Catalans Dragons centre Samisoni Langi which was confirmed over the weekend.

Is this where their transfer business now ends?

Trinity are in the process of announcing their 2023 squad numbers which would hint that maybe it is though they are only up to number seven.

They have however used up all their quota spots for the 2023 campaign which means there won’t be any further overseas signings.

That said, Serious About Rugby League understands that the original plan at Wakefield was to make five signings going into the new season but whether or not that remains the case is unclear.

There are plenty of exciting free agents knocking around including ex-Leeds Rhinos, Hull FC and Castleford Tigers halfback and Man of Steel winner Luke Gale.

Thus, they could still make moves for British players but time will tell whether or not they make further recruits.
