Wakefield Trinity is delighted to announce that a Dual Registration agreement has been reached between ourselves and Wigan Warriors for the 2024 season.
We see this as potentially very beneficial to both parties. For ourselves, it will allow us to access the vast talent bank within the large Warriors first team squad. It will allow young quality players to play for our club on both short and longer term bases.
For Wigan, with probably the largest squad in Super League, it gives added flexibility to better manage their playing resources and enable first team squad members to gain valuable experience and maintain their necessary fitness levels.
Head Coach, Daryl Powell said: ‘This dual registration agreement with Wigan will be hugely beneficial to both clubs. We will be able to give great opportunities to some of the best young players in the country, which in turn will give us strength and depth across the whole squad. I’m looking forward to working with Matty Peat and the whole Wigan club for mutually beneficial gain.’
Whilst appreciating that the process will require careful management, we feel that with goodwill from both parties, it can be a hugely productive arrangement.
