Analysis

Trinity have added some much needed power to their forward line this year, with a total of five forwards coming to the Mobile Rocket Stadium for 2020.

Jay Pitts, Joe Westerman, Adam Tangata and Josh Wood have all come in. Brad Walker has also come in, but he will spend the season on loan at Newcastle Thunder.

Tangata was at the club for a short time in 2019, after signing on loan in a swap deal with Keegan Hirst.

The West Yorkshire side have also had a bit of a clear-out in the forwards as Anthony England, Tyler Randell, Chris Annakin and Pauli Pauli have all moved on to pastures new.

They have also added exciting fullback Alex Walker, who was at London Broncos in 2019, and was one of the standout players for the capital side.

Overall, it will be interesting to see how the players adapt to their new surrondings. But if it clicks, then Wakefield should be ok.
