Trinity secure Green loan deal with Hull FC

6th August 2019, 18:31 by Craig Smithson

Wakefield Trinity have sealed a second signing of the day as Hull FC prop Chris Green has joined on loan until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old has been with the Black and Whites since his debut in 2011 and has gone on to make almost 150 appearances.

However, Green will swap the battle for a top-four finish at Hull with a relegation scrap at Trinity in the remainder of the campaign.

Looking forward to the switch, where he will link up with fellow new loan signing Morgan Escare, Green told the Wakefield website: "The move happened pretty quickly and I'm looking forward to getting out on the pitch for Trinity.

"I just want to help as much as I can between now and the end of the season and hopefully the lads can finish the season well.

"I'd like to thank Hull FC for allowing me this opportunity to get some game time and now I can't to get into training at Wakefield."

Head coach Chris Chester added:"To add a player of Chris' experience to the squad is a big boost.

"He strengthens the pack as we enter a crucial part in the season and gives us competition in the middle.

"I'd like to thank Hull FC for allowing this deal to happen."
