Wakefield Trinity star confirms he’s staying as others confirm exits

It’s been an emotional few days for Wakefield Trinity and their fans.

Thursday’s win was icing on their cake as they downed Hull KR thanks to a terrific try from Lewis Murphy on a night their survival was confirmed by Toulouse’s defeat to Catalans which was a deserved reward for Wakefield’s recent resurgence to turn the battle for survival on its head.

However, the game also marked the official last home appearance for David Fifita who marked the night with his very own touchline conversion. Tinirau Arona also confirmed prior to the game that it would be his last for Wakefield at Belle Vue.

Since the conclusion of the win, Yusuf Aydin’s departure has been confirmed with the former Leeds loanee joining Hull KR ahead of 2023 whilst Jacob Miller took to Instagram to confirm his departure.

He said: “Sad that was the last time I will lead the boys out at Belle Vue. The last eight years have been a fun ride, my family and I will cherish these memories forever.”

It seems Wakefield are to undergo a massive overhaul with their squad for 2023 as they go in search of a stronger campaign but one Wakefield star has confirmed he’s not going anywhere despite a rumour that he was also set to follow the likes of Miller through the exit door.

The player in question is fullback Max Jowitt who responded to a rumour on Twitter that he’d be leaving to say: “I’m still with Wakefield next year.”

Jowitt has had a tough year with spells on the sidelines and with Lee Gaskell and now Jamie Shaul to wrestle with for the fullback spot but that hasn’t deterred one of the most underrated fullbacks in the league who is set to stay at Wakefield and will likely be a key figure in Willie Poching’s rebuild.
