Kopczak pleased after Wakefield switch

26th December 2018, 13:39 by Tom Hill

New Wakefield Trinity prop Craig Kopczak insists he has no regrets about joining the club ahead of the 2019 Super League campaign.

The Wales international was snapped up at the end of last season and he is determined to help the club push on next season.

Under Chris Chester, Kopczak reckons the club are on the rise and he is happy to be joining a big pack in Yorkshire.

David Fifta, Anthony England, Pauli Pauli, Craig Huby and Keegan Hirst are already on the books, while Chester has some quality second-row forwards at his disposal.

Half-back Danny Brough has also returned to the club and Kopczak admits he is pleased with his decision to move to Trinity.

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "It’s a massive pack. I didn’t want to be tackling them any more – I would rather be playing with them!

"It is a huge pack to play with and it’s going to be good having the likes of Broughy [Danny Brough], with his kicking game, playing behind them.

"It has been great, a fresh start is always good for you. Everyone has been really great to me, the lads have been great to accept me into the group.

"Training has been really tough, which you’d expect with it being pre-season, but really enjoyable at the same time."
