A lot of the focus right now will be on the fact that Wakefield Trinity have lost the last three games without scoring a point but they are doing it tough.
After losing the likes of Max Jowitt and Lewis Murphy, last night against Leeds Rhinos they lost two more in the shape of Lee Gaskell and Samisoni Langi.
After the game Mark Applegarth confirmed the extent of their injuries: “Gaskell is a torn pec and Samisoni Langi is a head knock.”
There has been talk of new signings coming into the club and Applegarth said they’re needed:
“Yeah we’ll have to have a look. We’ll have Harry Bowes back but he’s six weeks out so he will have to have a run out in the reserves and Robbie Butterworth is coming back from a groin injury but it would be good to get a couple of senior heads in to boost that backline.”
However, he explained it is a difficult situation:
“It’s nothing that I wasn’t aware of. You can only work with the budget you’ve got. The board has been very supportive, they are helping and supporting.
“It isn’t just identifying targets but it is whether we can afford them.
“We’ll identify some targets and get some people in and we will keep on working hard and hopefully we will turn things around.”
Yesterday Dan Sarginson left Salford Red Devils meaning he is now available whilst they have announced the signing of Sam Hewitt from Huddersfield on a two week loan.
Trinity made an inquiry about Ash Golding but the Huddersfield Giants rejected the move.
Jake Mamo is set to be available if released from Castleford Tigers but reports suggest he will retire.
