After the transfer was announced, Josh Wood opened up about his tough season: “I had a disappointing year in 2019 due to a little niggle but I’ve got it all sorted now and I’m ready for a fresh challenge in 2020,” Wood said to Wakefield Trinity’s club site.
He added: “I feel like I’m ready to really kick on with my career now and I hope I can do that at Wakefield.
“I’m now excited for pre-season starting so I can meet all the lads and rip-in to the training.”

“He’s a tough player is Josh and a really nice kid,” said Chester.
