Wood signs new contract!

To add to the good news, the club are delighted to announce that Kyle Wood has signed a new contract to keep him in the Red, White & Blue until the end of 2021!

The hooker has been in outstanding form this season and has been a key part of Chris Chester’s squad since joining Trinity ahead of the 2017 season.

His deception and speed out of dummy-half makes him a tricky player to play against and the Number 9 has already crossed for four tries this campaign.

Wood admits it was a ‘no brainer’ to extend his deal:

“I’m really excited for the next few years. I’ve enjoyed my time here so far. We’ve got a great squad and we’re playing well, so it was a no brainer to sign.

“To keep people like Dave (Fifita) at the club is great and we just want to keep building. The aim is to be playing in semi-final rugby and for myself personally I want to be playing in a Challenge Cup or Grand Final.”

Head Coach, Chris Chester, is full of praise for the hooker:

“It’s great news that Woody’s signed up for the next couple of years. He’s been a big part of the squad since I’ve been here and he’s a great bloke to have around.

“He’s found his home here at Wakefield and I think it’s good business all around. His form this year has been outstanding and I’m looking forward to working with Woody over the next few years.”
