Hampshire wants new contract

15th September 2019, 17:39 by Dan McCarthy

Wakefield Trinity back Ryan Hampshire says he wants to sort out his future after helping them to Super League safety.

He scored a try either side of half time in their 19-10 win over London Broncos which preserved their safety at the expense of their opponents.

Wakefield endured a big slump in the second half of the season and went into the final day of fixtures as one of four teams who could have gone down.

Chris Chester's men survived, however, and now Hampshire is hoping to have his future secured.

He was offered a new three-year-deal earlier in the campaign but it was taken off the table in May, which he admits was a mistake, bus is now hopeful of an extended stay.

"It is pretty poor from my side and we will see what happens with my future in the next few weeks," he said.

"Tonight, I showed how much this club means to me.

"I just feel coming into this game, the last few weeks – I don't like to blow myself up – but I have been the top try-scorer, got top assists, most carries and played three positions when needed.

"So I just feel I am worth a little bit more than what the offer is."
