Wakefield Trinity vice-captain’s squad number confirmed

Jordy Crowther has become a key player for Wakefield Trinity so much so that he has been appointed as vice captain in 2023.

This comes after the departure of Jacob Miller to Castleford Tigers as the move saw Matty Ashurst appointed skipper and the ex-St Helens backrow will be joined by in the leadership ranks by Crowther in 2023.

He has again be given the number 14 shirt for the 2023 season as a key player who can step in and be a ball playing 13 or cover the number nine spot.

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 was yesterday confirmed as keeping the number eight also ahead of 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 with Jai Whitbread taking Tinirau Arona’s number 10 in 2023.

Liam Hood has kept nine. Ashurst has kept 11 with Kelepi Tanginoa still at 12 and Jay Pitts at 13 all of whom have beaten new signing Kevin Proctor to their respective squad numbers.

No new signing has yet had their squad number confirmed.
