TRIBUTES have been paid to a former Wakefield Trinity forward who died on Wednesday.

Malcolm Sampson, who played for Wakefield during the 1950s and 60s, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease five years ago.

The 72-year-old remains the only Wakefield forward to score at Wembley after scoring in the club’s Challenge Cup victory over Wigan in 1963.
