Luke Gale completes stunning transfer to Super League club

Former Man of Steel Luke Gale has completed his stunning move from Keighley Cougars to Wakefield Trinity effective immediate.

The halfback joins the club until 2024 as he looks to help turn the club’s fortunes around.

A West Yorkshire star, he has played his best rugby in the county especially at a Wakefield post code.

He started his career at Leeds Rhinos. He didn’t get a first team run out but did feature on Boxing Day 2007 as the Rhinos ironically defeated Wakefield Trinity.

The halfback spent time at Doncaster but got his Super League move with Harlequins.

This was before he returned to West Yorkshire with the Bradford Bulls but upon their relegation he joined Castleford Tigers which would be the making of him.

He was named in the Dream Team three years in a row, won the Man of Steel in 2017 as the Tigers finished top before he played in a first ever Grand Final.

That year he also played in a World Cup Final however injuries undercut his time at the Jungle and in 2020 he returned to Leeds where he would soon be appointed skipper and would nail the drop goal that won them a 14th Challenge Cup.

However, a disagreement with Richard Agar saw him lose the captaincy before the arrival of Aidan Sezer and Blake Austin saw him leave for Hull FC.

After one year at the club as they missed out on the play-offs he left the club and was a major coup for the ambitious Cougars but those ambitions have been struck by the IMG vote and he has now been allowed to join Wakefield immediately.
