Last night Wakefield Trinity confirmed the signing of Kevin Proctor on a one-year deal.
The former NRL winner with Melbourne Storm has reportedly signed a “very lucrative deal” with the club as they start a new era under new boss Mark Applegarth in 2023 with the stadium also being redeveloped.
They also have two more quota spots left to use as they lay down the perfect response to the Leigh Leopards after the recruitment drive with many tipping one of the two clubs to finish bottom in 2023.
Proctor is the ideal signing to fend that off after all he brings major experience.
On signing for Wakefield, the forward told the club website: “I just can’t wait to get over and get going.
“The challenge is something I’m really looking forward to. I’m hoping my experience will complement the squad and the young fellas that are a part of it.
“I’m really hungry to succeed and can’t wait for the journey to start.”
So, he is expecting to bring experience to the side to compliment the squad.
It is a major coup by Trinity and the former New Zealand international has backflipped on his initial decision to join the club.
After he was sacked by Gold Coast Titans for vaping at halftime in an NRL game, he was set to retire despite interest from Salford Red Devils and Hull FC as well as Trinity.
However, after these moves never came off, Trinity came back around and have secured him for next season.
