Wakefield Trinity boss Willie Poching makes interesting comments on Jacob Miller’s future following big Hull FC win

Wakefield Trinity were able to overcome Hull FC in golden point extra-time yesterday at Belle Vue.

After trailing 18-6 going into the last 12 minutes of the Super League fixture, Trinity rallied, scoring two tries and sending the game past the 80 minute mark.

Up stepped veteran Jacob Miller – who has been at Belle Vue for eight years – to slot over a drop-goal and win a priceless two points for the West Yorkshire side as they battle to stave off relegation against Toulouse Olympique.

Miller has, however, been linked with a move away from Wakefield, with rivals Castleford Tigers said to be hunting the halfback, but Trinity head coach Willie Poching wants to keep the Australian.

“He’s been a great servant for us in this time and we want to keep hold of him,” Poching said after his side’s win over Hull.

“But if it’s not to be then so be it, but he had ice in his veins today to do that and he was really calm.

“He wanted to get the team in the right position throughout the game and came up with the big moment.”

Meanwhile, Castleford are expected to recruit heavily for 2023 with head coach Lee Radford struggling at present with his Tigers side.
