Wakefield Trinity star completes move to new club

Former Wakefield Trinity star Kevin Proctor

Former Wakefield Trinity forward Kevin Proctor finally completed his move to Carcassonne to feature in their top-of-the-table clash against Albi.

Proctor joined Wakefield Trinity ahead of the 2022 season after leaving Gold Coast Titans. The New Zealand international was expected to retire but in a surprise twist, he made a move to Belle Vue as one of the major coups of the new Super League season.

However, Proctor struggled for fitness as Wakefield struggled at the bottom of the Super League table eventually suffering relegation.

Proctor missed the end of the season due to a suspension and shortly after the club released a statement confirming he was leaving the club.

This led to speculation that he would likely retire but like many before him, Proctor eventually made the move to the Elite One Championships.

Like James Maloney, James Segeyaro, Corey Norman and Dean Whare, Proctor has made the move across to France joining Carcassonne midway through their 2023/24 campaign.

Proctor was set to make the move over to France last week and was set to make his debut but the move was delayed.

However, Proctor eventually arrived at the club this week in time to debut against the Albi Tigers in a top-of-the-table clash.

Proctor started on the bench for his new club and entered a tight battle that his new club would eventually suffer defeat in losing 32-30 to Albi at home as revealed by Treize Mondial.

Wakefield Trinity sign Proctor replacement

Wakefield Trinity has recently announced the signing of New Zealand forward, Isaiah Vagana, on a 2-year deal. The club has acted quickly to benefit from the changes to visa requirements, allowing UK clubs to acquire exceptional young overseas talent.

Isaiah, aged 23, certainly has the right pedigree, being the son of the legendary Joe Vagana, the Bradford Bulls and New Zealand International prop forward. He stands tall at 6’3” and weighs over 16 stones.

He has progressed through the New Zealand Warriors squad since 2020 and has recently been on the fringes of his NRL debut. His career started at the Mount Albert Lions junior club in NZ, and he represented the Junior Kiwis International team in 2019. Last season, he played 24 games for the Warriors in their NSW cup side at both prop and back row.

Vagana will be taking the squad number 19 shirt for Trinity in 2024, in an increasingly powerful forward pack. It’s sure to be an exciting and successful season as Wakefield Trinity strives to take the Championship by storm and return to the Super League at the first attempt.
