Super League side set for two signings

Wakefield Trinity

Recruitment is well underway for 2024 at every Super League club.

Wigan Warriors have signed a trio of stars for 2024 in Kruise Leeming, Sam Walters and Tiaki Chan.

Hull KR were quick to the punch signing the likes of Oliver Gildart and former Warrington Wolves star Oliver Gildart.

Leeds Rhinos have Mickael Goudemand this week.

One club who is also active is Wakefield Trinity with Mark Applegarth giving an update.

“There’s talks ongoing with players and we’re making sure that we secure players for Wakefield that we feel are going to help us in this transitional period and help us through the other end of it.

“In terms of recruitment, we’re speaking to a number of players just like every club is. Hopefully we’ve got a couple of good signings that we can announce soon and we’re just focusing in on that really.

“It’s just about securing our best talent and making sure they’ve still got a Wakefield Trinity badge on.

“Obviously it makes it trickier when you’ve got that threat of a relegation looming over you, such as we have. So it’s important that you have a solid plan in place, both ways, whether you survive in Super League or if the worst did happen, it’s important that you do plan.

“Obviously, we’ll be doing everything we can to make sure it’s plan A and that we’re still in Super League. But I think I said a few months ago, you’d be idiotic not to have a plan for both.

“We’re chatting to players, making sure they’re aware of what our ambitions are on both sides of it. That’s why you’ve seen a few players that have been signing dual contracts that stay valid for whatever the outcome because they’re part of our long-term planning.

“We’re just focusing on that really, from up here, and making sure that we’re as best prepared for both options as we can be.”

He also hinted that the club has a couple of signings to announce.

He said:

“Hopefully we have got a couple of good signings we can announce.”
