Wakefield Trinity to bid farewell to another Super League star as Willie Poching set for big rebuild

Wakefield Trinity will be bidding farewell to another of their Super League stars at the end of the season.

That man is Cook Islands international Tinirau Arona, who tweeted: “After 7 years at @WTrinityRL tomorrow night will be my last home game! I’ll farewell our fans after the match with the other lads leaving.

“I’ve got nothing but respect for Michael, John and the board for everything they have done for my family and I. Michael has had my back since I first arrived at the end of 2015 and I’ll forever be grateful.”

Arona has been at the club since the beginning of the 2016 Super League season, with the 33-year-old prop making 162 appearances in that time.

It follows the news from yesterday with David Fifita revealing on his own social media account that he would also be leaving Trinity after seven years at the club.

In doing so, it is the end of an era at Belle Vue with star halfback Jacob Miller also expected to be departing for neighbours Castleford Tigers and Bill Tupou having to retire.

Tom Johnstone is also heading for the Catalans Dragons as a big rebuild is underway for Willie Poching and the West Yorkshire club ahead of the 2023 Super League season.
