Wakefield Trinity look set to field a vastly different team next year after parting company with a majority of their squad. James Webster wants to reshape the team and has openly stated that he wants size and power in the engine room, he's tight lipped about targets but rumours have Lopini Paeya, Fui Fui Moi Moi, Antoni Maria and Julian Bousquet linked to Trinity.

Some interesting weeks ahead for Wakefield fans as signings are inevitable

OUT
Richard Moore - Halifax
Taulima Tautai - Wigan
Andy Raleigh - Retired
Richard Mathers - London Broncos
Richard Owen - Loan Returnee
Chris Riley - Loan Returnee
Tim Smith - Loan Returnee
Kyle Trout - Season Loan to Featherstone
Chris Anakin- Season Loan to Featherstone
Ali Lauitiiti - Off Contract
Matty Wildie - Dewsbury
Paul Sykes - Off Contract
Lucas Walshaw - Off Contract
Harry Seijka - Released
Lee Gilmour - Loan Returnee
Peter Fox - Halifax

They'll struggle to replace all of those within their budget I reckon. NRL salaries now mean that you only get old or used up players coming over here now. They may need to invest in a new treatment room first.

Don't like Tim Smith, don't rate him, but he seems to fit at Wakey, and we're a lot better with him in the team than without him, so hopefully we'll retain him. Can't see Salford wanting him back, or any of the big clubs wanting him.

Although their futures remain unresolved I fully expect a few on the list to sign for Wakefield in some capacity or other.

Lauitiiti - 1 more year
T Smith - extended loan or released by Salford and signed by Wakey
Walshaw - 1yr
Gilmour - Assistant a Coach/Player
