Locke open to staying with Wakefield

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats full-back Kevin Locke has revealed that he would be open to staying at Wakefield in 2016 – and hasn’t committed to going back Down Under.

Locke signed a deal until the end of the season with the Wildcats, and impressed on debut during their win against Hull on Wednesday.

And he admitted that he’d certainly be open to remaining at the club, even if they aren’t in Super League – although he says that’s a proposition which will not come to fruition if Wakefield play how they did against Hull.

He said: “I was talking about it the other night; I’m open to all options. This is a great club, I’ve only been here a week and the welcome I’ve had has been phenomenal.

“Me and my partner love it up here, we love the scenery and the town. I’ve walked around and everyone has made me feel really welcome. I’m here to focus on Wakefield now, if I end up here next year so be it – I wouldn’t say no.”

When asked if Wakefield had to be in Super League for him to stay, Locke said: “No, not really. I’m not thinking about that though because I know we’ll be in Super League if we play like we did last night – I have confidence that we can stay up.”
