Wakefield Trinity can confirm the arrival of Will Dagger from Hull KR with immediate effect, whilst Corey Hall has moved in the opposite direction.
With the injury sustained to Max Jowitt leaving us light at fullback, Dagger, who played with Trinity at scholarship level, strengthens us in that role and will go straight into contention for Friday’s game away at Saints.
Hall leaves Trinity with our best wishes having featured 30 times for the club, scoring nine tries.
Trinity Head Coach, Mark Applegarth, has explained the swap deal: “First of all, I’d like to thank Corey for his brilliant service to Wakefield Trinity. It’s been no secret that we have been on the search for a fullback, so we have reluctantly let Corey move onto new pastures at Hull KR to be able to bring Will in. As a club, we wish Corey nothing but the best.
“I’m delighted Will is on board with us and I’m looking forward to getting him into training and to start working with him. He will certainly add to our squad in that fullback role with his ability and skillset, and I know that he is really excited to be linking up with us.”
Dagger added: “I’m really looking forward to getting going and ripping in for the lads. I started at Wakefield in the scholarship and I’m excited to be coming back to the club.
“It will be good to get some more game time and I can’t wait to get out on the field and do what I love doing.”
Dagger has signed a contract with the club until the end of the 2024 season and will be proudly sponsored by Temp Station.
