HALF-BACK Kyle Wood has returned to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats from Huddersfield Giants.
The 22-year-old joined Wakefield as a 17-year-old but found first team opportunities hard to come by and made the switch to Doncaster, where he was part of their promotion-winning team.
He moved on to Sheffield Eagles and Castleford Tigers before Huddersfield snapped him up. But with competition from players such as Kevin Brown, Luke Robinson and former Wildcat Danny Brough at the Galpharm Stadium, Wood has returned to his former club to try and get more regular Super League action.
“At Huddersfield they’ve got a lot of good international half-backs and it’s a matter of coming here and trying to get some more game time and a regular first team place as long as I work and train hard,” said Wood.
“Rich (Agar) seems to give young lads a try, gets them out on the field and gives them an opportunity. You only get better with game time.
“I’ve played a couple of games here and there but I’ve found that you get better when you can play consecutive games.
“That’s what I’ve got to aim for. I want to have a good pre-season and hopefully Rich will pick me.
“I know we’re going to have a good squad next year and we can hopefully kick-on towards the play-offs.”
Wood made eight appearances during his time at Huddersfield and was on-loan at Batley Bulldogs last season.
Wakefield have also confirmed that Tommy Lee has been released by the club.
