Super League star has surgery

Wakefield Trinity’s win over Leeds Rhinos was shocking itself but what made things even more surprising was the fact Wakefield had a man sent off and were missing 13 men through.

Speaking after the game, Mark Applegarth gave an injury update revealing star man Kelepi Tanginoa has had surgery:

“Kelepi who’s had surgery on his broken arm, most of the other injuries should be there or thereabouts. So again it creates competition for places and some of the younger end of that squad have grown into it today. They’ve answered a few questions they probably had in their own head and hopefully we can kick on and start putting some pressure on them teams around us.”

He also spoke about thanking people for sticking by him:

“I’m worried about not thanking everyone but yeah I’ve just got a strong network around me and I don’t want to thank one or two because I don’t want to offend a couple that I miss but John and Michael have been great too. They know exactly what’s been happening and where we’re at so I suppose I’d like to thank them too because I know they put up with quite a lot of criticism as well.”

However, Wakefield can’t kick on due to a week off.

Asked if he was disappointed to have this week off, he said:

“Yes and no, we got a lot of busted bodies. I mean, Jay Pitts should not have played today. He was playing on one leg. He’s put his hand up for the team. So I’m glad that we’ll be able to pressure a few up. Yeah, but at the same time, it’d be nice to continue that momentum with it for sure. it’d be nice to continue that momentum with it for sure.”
