Wakefield Trinity target has been “ripping it up” at Hull FC as ex-Leeds Rhinos man to wait for debut

After losing the number one shirt to Jake Connor in 2021, Jamie Shaul moved back to his original jersey 29.

Shaul however then had to play second fiddle to the now Huddersfield Giants bound Connor resulting in a brilliant loan spell with Wakefield Trinity in 2022.

After impressing at Belle Vue, Trinity were keen on signing him but as Mark Applegarth took charge and placed the focus on signing forwards which put an end to the club’s pursuit of Shaul resulting in him staying at Hull FC under new boss Tony Smith and despite the signing of Tex Hoy from the NRL.

However, Shaul has been truly impressive in training recording some best ever score in tests.

“He’s been training terrifically. He’s been ripping it up and recording best-evers in tests,” Tony Smith revealed on the club’s website before explaining that Shaul has sadly picked up an injury.

“Jamie Shaul has also picked up a slight calf injury, although he’ll be back in running again next week. We’ve just had to take him out of running this week, which is a real shame for him.”

Meanwhile, Smith also confirmed that new signing Liam Sutcliffe will have to wait for his debut despite the upcoming fixture against Sheffield Eagles:

“We’ll pretty much give a considerable amount of game time to the whole squad this weekend. There’s just two senior players that are fit that I’m not going to play.

“One of those is Ligi Sao, and he’s not going to play because he played right through to the final game of the World Cup.

“The other is Liam Sutcliffe, who played right through to the Grand Final with Leeds.

“Those two won’t be called upon this weekend but they’ll certainly get some game time against Wakefield.”
