Jacob Miller has become one of Wakefield Trinity’s most important players since he signed on the dotted line back in 2015.
174 appearances later for the club and the 29-year-old has been the subject of intense speculation surrounding a potential move to the Wigan Warriors.
However, the Wigan club signed NRL halfback Cade Cust from the Manly Sea Eagles instead, with Miller planning on returning to Wakefield following an extended off-season in Australia.
Now, chairman John Minards has spoken about the past few weeks and Miller’s thought on his future.
“I can’t tell you whether Milky (Jacob Miller) wanted to stay or not, however, in the conversations I had with Milky before he went home, what I was hearing was how happy he was about playing for Wakefield,” Minards told Trinity TV.
“We were determined we would retain him and we made that clear about any approaches that were made.”
Minards also went on to reveal just how important the Australian halfback is for Trinity.
“He’s a key player for us, he leaves nothing out on the field.
“He’s the sort of player that doesn’t talk about his injuries and works through his pain.
“I’m delighted he’s with us.”
