One off contract player Wakefield Trinity need to tie down

Though the 2023 Super League season has yet to begin, preparations for beyond that will have already begun especially as most sides have already done all their business for the 2023 barring the likes of Catalans Dragons, Leigh Leopards and potentially Salford Red Devils.

As in the NRL, considerations will be made to how squads for the 2024 season will look especially after they set the precedent down under of making signings well in advance because of the 1st November rule.

All sides have players off contract at the end of 2023 and they will definitely want to secure some of these players down moving forward, and we will likely start to see this happen sooner rather than later especially as current clubs are allowed to underline what they intend for their current players coming off contract and essentially have first dibs.

So, considering this, which off contract player should Wakefield Trinity look to tie down for 2024 and beyond?

There is one name that stands out at Belle Vue and that is winger Lewis Murphy. Murphy burst onto the scene last year with some brilliant tries.

In many ways it was perfect timing as he announced himself in time to show that he could replace Catalans Dragons bound Tom Johnstone.

Thus, Wakefield need to keep him at all costs.

Many were surprised that he wasn’t given a starting jersey for 2023 instead receiving 23.
