WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats head coach Richard Agar is chasing a “number one target” in the transfer market as he pieces together his new squad.

More new signings, in the shape of Isaac John and Steve Southern, are expected to land in the UK over the next few days as Agar admits that his training programme is “starting to piece together”.

And as reported in last week’s Wakefield Express, the Trinity boss continues to chase down new signings that will strengthen his squad further.

Agar revealed he has a “number one target” and the Express understands that Cronulla Sharks and Papua New Guinea hooker Paul Aiton is the man in question.

Agar is hopeful of signing “a couple of faces before Christmas” but the number of additions will depend on how many more players will leave the Cats’ roster.

It is believed that there are several players who could be allowed to leave the club in the coming weeks and player-coach Glenn Morrison will now concentrate wholly on coaching duties after sustaining a shoulder injury in training that has ended his playing career.

Agar said: “We were due to sit down and talk about the balance in Glenn’s role and one concern was how his body would hold up and striking the right balance between coaching and playing.

“The injury is a massive blow but it has made some decisions for us.

“He can look back on his playing career with pride. We will miss his experience on the field and perhaps that is something that we may look to replace in the future.”
