Wakefield Clearing the Decks

17 posts in this topic

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

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.

Would ya like Fox back?

No but you lot could sign Owen and then you'll have a matching pair.

Would ya like Fox back?

No but I'd take Gareth Potts back, he'd also count towards our Academy produced quota

Craig Hall signed too.

I had that feeling that I'd forgotten someone.

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

As long as you have Danny Kirmond you'll be alright.
