Riley likely to stay at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats

On-loan Warrington winger Chris Riley is likely to stay at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats for the foreseeable future, after boss Tony Smith admitted they are “OK” without the services of Riley at the moment.

Smith also believes that Riley – who is one of the Wolves’ longest-serving players – will benefit from remaining at Wakefield too, rather than coming back to Warrington and not getting as many opportunities to play.

“I’m not going to bring Chris back until he’s got a position to play,” said Smith.

“At the moment he’s in the best place possible for his development in order for him to get himself in the best form possible, so we won’t change that.

“If we break the loan period – at the moment we can bring him back at any stage – we’d need to be able to play him for the next month or so to make it the right decision, so at the moment we’re OK without Chris.”
