Kyle Wood becomes latest Wakefield player to agree long-term deal

The good news keeps on coming for Wakefield fans, as hooker Kyle Wood has becomes the latest player to agree a new three-year deal with the club.

Wood, who has been impressive for Trinity this season as they lay the foundations for a play-off push in 2019, has decided to remain with Chris Chester’s side until the end of the 2021 season.

He said: “I’m really excited for the next few years. I’ve enjoyed my time here so far. We’ve got a great sqaud and we’re playing well, so it was a no brainer to sign.

“To keep people like Dave (Fifita) at the club is great and we just want to keep building. The aim is to be playing in semi-final rugby and for myself personally I want to be playing in a Challenge Cup or Grand Final.”

“It’s great news that Woody’s signed up for the next couple of years,” coach Chris Chester said. “He’s been a big part of the squad since I’ve been here and he’s a great bloke to have around.

“He’s found his home here at Wakefield and I think it’s good business all around. His form this year has been outstanding and I’m looking forward to working with Woody over the next few years.”
