Wakefield Clearing the Decks

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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
