Wakefield Trinity are doing it tough at the moment with injuries.
Which begs the question: will they make further signings after bringing in Sam Hewitt on loan from Huddersfield Giants.
After losing heartbreakingly to Salford Red Devils yesterday, coach Mark Applegarth addressed whether or not they could bring in more signings.
“We are a bit busted on certain positions and we are actively looking for people that are going to strengthen us,” he said to BBC Sport West Yorkshire.
“What I don’t want to do is get someone in for the sake of getting someone in. I thought that Sam Hewitt was excellent today, we got him in from Huddersfield and that sort of signing is one that gives us some impact and makes us a better team.
“Hoody failed his HIA so he’ll be out of Friday night going through the protocols, so it’s a good job we’ve got Bowesy back fit. We’ll have a look what options we’ve got there.”
Prior to the game, Applegarth addressed whether or not the club could sign Leeds hooker Kruise Leeming after he requested to leave Headingley:
“It is a strange one and it came out of the blue,” the Wakefield boss said on BBC Sport West Yorkshire.
“He is obviously a good player. I am sure he will be on everybody’s radar who has space.
“He certainly won’t be short of offers.”
When asked if they themselves were interested, he said:
“I am sure everyone would be interested in him, but at the same time we have to be realistic.”
