Wakefield Trinity man beats new signing to shirt number

Wakefield Trinity have confirmed their number eight for the the 2023 season.

Trinity have announced their entire first choice back division and are now moving on to the unveiling of their first choice pack.

Trinity will have Max Jowitt wearing number one, Jorge Taufua at two with Tom Lineham beating star youngster Lewis Murphy to the number five shirt.

Ex-Leeds Rhinos man Corey Hall takes three with Reece Lyne, the former Hull FC centre who is celebrating a testimonial, keeps four with new signing Samisoni Langi overlooked.

Speaking of overlooking new signings, Morgan Smith missed out on six with former Huddersfield Giants halfback Lee Gaskell taking on six having worn 17 last year.

Mason Lino has kept seven whilst Eddie Battye has now been confirmed as keeping the number eight ahead of new signing Renouf Atoni.

Battye took on the eight shirt left by David Fifita who in his last season moved back to 35 last year.

Battye will now keep it again in 2023 as Atoni’s shirt number remains unclear.

That is true if all Wakefield’s signings with Kevin Proctor no closer to discovering his shirt number.

It also remains to be seen whether Wakefield make further signings.

Serious About Rugby League understands the original plan was to make five new signings and only four have come through the door.
