Wakefield Trinity have announced the signings of Liam Hood and Tom Lineham.
Hood – who is currently plying his trade with Leigh Centurions and has enjoyed a healthy spell in Kurt Haggerty’s side this term – has signed a two-year deal and Lineham – who featured against Trinity for Warrington yesterday – has signed until the end of 2024.
Lineham, has played a vital role in Warrington’s resurgence over recent years, helping the club win their first Challenge Cup since 2012 as well as making two Grand Final appearances.
The two will hook up with their Trinity teammates for the start of the 2022 season and the pair can’t wait to get started.
“Wakefield is a really tough place to go, and the club have some great, skilful players, who play a good brand of Rugby,” explained Lineham.
“That is something that really appealed to me and, hopefully, I can come in, work with the group, with new players, coaches, and constantly continue to develop my game.”
“It’s a new challenge and one I am really excited about.”
While, Hood, followed, “I’m buzzing, to be honest! I live in Wakefield now, so it is nice to be closer to home.
“I feel that I am probably playing the best Rugby of my career at the moment. I am 30 in January, so I believe that I am coming into my prime now and playing at my best.
“I am just looking forward to getting there [to the Mobile Rocket Stadium] and ripping in.”
