Wakefield move was “no-brainer”, insists Finn

New Wakefield Trinity Wildcats half-back Liam Finn has revealed that he believes his move to Belle Vue for 2016 was a “no-brainer” of a decision to make.

Finn enjoyed a successful two years at Castleford under Daryl Powell but, with the promise of first-team action not as strong as the offer from Wakefield, the 32-year-old has opted to make the switch across West Yorkshire and join the Wildcats.

And he admitted that he’s got no desire to be sat on the sidelines watching his team-mates play: he wants to be out in the thick of it, which is why the opportunity for regular minutes at Wakefield left him with a simple decision to make.

“I’ve not sat about watching rugby at any point in my career and I don’t want to start doing that now at 32 years old,” he told the Wakefield Express.

“Wakefield could offer me regular football and it was a no-brainer really, especially when I spoke to Brian Smith and heard what his plans were for the club.

“It’s been a really enjoyable first few weeks of training and I’m getting to know the boys now. I’m looking forward to this season starting.”
