Wakefield Trinity forward available to Super League clubs

Wakefield Trinity forward Dane Windrow is still available and with clubs like Salford Red Devils, Warrington Wolves and London Broncos still in the market he could be a potential target for them.

The young forward could also be snapped up by someone like Featherstone Rovers in the Championship. The Rovers have seen their squad shrink in size after losing 17 players in one fell swoop prior to Chris Hankinson’s move to Salford Red Devils and the decision of Ellis Longstaff to leave the sport.

Salford Red Devils have also seen a vast number of players leave including forward Alex Gerrard. Windrow could replace him.

As for London, they are looking for ways to reinforce their squad ahead of the new Super League season.

Windrow began playing rugby league at Dewsbury Celtic before moving to Brighouse Rangers. At 15, he signed for Wakefield’s scholarship programme and has gone on to feature for the club’s Academy and Reserves.

The back rower enjoyed a spell on loan at his hometown club Dewsbury Rams during the 2021 season and spent part of last season also on loan, at League 1 side Oldham RLFC, where he went on to make nine appearances, scoring two tries.

He then joined Newcastle Thunder on loan last year. Speaking on his loan move to Thunder, Windrow said: “I am looking forward to ripping in here, they are a good set of lads.

“It is also a great opportunity for me personally and my development as a player.”

Newcastle Thunder head coach Chris Thorman said: “He has come from Wakefield with good recommendations from Mark Applegarth and James Ford.

“He is a back rower that has joined out of necessity as we have had quite a few injuries to the squad but he is more than capable and we are looking forward to having him in the squad – he also trained this week and fitted in well which is another positive.

“On the pitch he is a big body and a big aggressive ball carrier. He is a Dewsbury lad so knows the game very well and he is going to add some strike on the edge for us which is something we need.”

So he is clearly highly thought of.
