Mark Applegarth makes bold statement about Wakefield Trinity as he explains who he will replace

Wakefield Trinity have made some huge signings for the new season.

They have drafted in Catalans Dragons man Samisoni Langi after they missed out on him in 2021.

Former Canterbury Bulldogs and Sydney Roosters forward Renouf Atoni has arrived at the club and taken on the number 17 shirt.

Morgan Smith will wear the number 20 after joining from Featherstone Rovers. The halfback has spent time in the Leeds Rhinos academy as well as with Warrington Wolves and London Broncos in Super League.

Their biggest signing though will wear the number 19 in the shape of NRL winner Kevin Proctor.

Formerly of Melbourne Storm and Gold Coast Titans, Proctor is also a former New Zealand international and Mark Applegarth has high hopes for the forward.

As he revealed that Proctor would arrive in the country on the 27th due to Visa complications when speaking to BBC Radio Leeds, Applegarth went on to make a bold statement about him and who he can replace:

“It’s one of those things I don’t get involved with, I leave it to the off field staff, but I have been in constant dialogue with him, he’s definitely a presence.

“With guys like Big Dave and guys like that going, it was important we got that presence in the pack. I don’t think anyone can argue that Kevin Proctor doesn’t have that.”
