Wakefield Trinity and ex-Hull FC centre Reece Lyne deservedly recognised with testimonial

Reece Lyne is an England international and a top notch Super League centre.

His career started at Hull FC where he made eight appearances at the club over a three year stint as he struggled to crack the first team, he made the move to Wakefield after which he has never looked back.

He joined Trinity at the end of the 2012 season initially on a three year deal and has become part of the furniture.

Ironically he made his 100th Wakefield appearance against Hull FC in 2016 before taking on the number four shirt in 2017 as he became a key figure in perhaps the best Wakefield side in Super League history with back to back fifth place finishes on the back of a top eight finish in 2016.

As he excelled at Wakefield he began to be recognised at international level being named in the England Knights squad in 2018 before making his England debut later in the year against France at Leigh.

He also appeared for England in the 2019 World 9s before featuring in Shaun Wane’s new look England side in 2021.

His World Cup chances, which once seemed very strong, did deteriorate this season sadly due to an injury hit campaign but his importance off the field as an experience head at 29 can be seen in the growth of players like Lewis Murphy but especially new arrival at Wakefield Corey Hall who could be seen as the next Lyne at Wakefield.

At 29, Lyne still has plenty of good years ahead of him but with over 200 appearances to his name including some at international level, he deserves extra credit especially for the way he’s become a key player at Wakefield and a real consistent star at Belle Vue, and has now been granted a testimonial after 10 seasons at the club.

He already has a superb testimonial shirt which is presently available to sponsor.

A real Super League star, he certainly deserves this moment.
