Super League side confirm the return of forward on short term deal

Wakefield Trinity have confirmed yet another signing making it three in one day though this one is a loan signing.

Trinity recently brought Jack Croft back to the club after he left at the end of the 2022 season and Mark Applegarth has also confirmed a desire to bring Isaac Shaw back to the club.

Earlier today Trinity now added another new signing to their ranks in the shape of former Catalans Dragons man Romain Franco on a 28 day trial.

The club made the following statement:

Then, less than an hour later, the club announced the signing of another Frenchman in the shape of forward Hugo Salabio on a similar 28 day trial.

Now Trinity have confirmed the signing of Huddersfield Giants prop Sam Hewitt on loan.

Hewitt was at the club earlier this season and returns on a two week loan.

Remarkably, Trinity might not even stop there.

Last week reports emerged that Wakefield Trinity could swoop for their former star player David Fifita.

A fan favourite, Fifita underpinned a hugely successful period at the club for Wakefield as they finished fifth in back to back seasons in 2017 and 2018.

However, last season the big prop left the club as a hero.

But with Wakefield in serious relegation peril, there were reports that Wakefield would ask him to return and spark their season into life.

Now those reports have been confirmed by Mark Applegarth.

“We are looking into it, he would be an incredible boost for our squad,” Applegarth said according to Sky Sports.

“We’re down on numbers and it looks like Kelepi Tanginoa has broken his arm so we really need the numbers.”

Wakefield lost for the 14th time this season away to Catalans Dragons on Friday so Fifita would be an almighty boost.

However, with their quota spots completely full at the moment, Trinity would have to lose one of their stars to secure Fifita’s sensation Belle Vue return this season.

So, there is still much to do to determine where this goes but it seems Fifita is on the verge of a sensational return to Super League.
