CLUB captain Glenn Morrison hopes to play on in Super League next year - at the age of 35.
And the Wakefield fans’ favourite has already made his intentions clear to Belle Vue bosses.
By going public, Morrison has also alerted other clubs to his potential availability for the 2012 campaign.
Writing in his column for the Yorkshire Evening Post, Morrison revealed: “I am 35 now and when you get to that stage in your career it becomes a year-by-year thing.
“I have spoken to the club and said that I want to stay, but at the moment it is a case of waiting to see who the new coach is as I want to do some coaching as well.
“I have been taken off the quota which is good and if I don’t get anything with Wakefield, hopefully I will be able to work a deal out somewhere else.
“Whatever happens, I still want to play. I have got over my recent hand injury, my body feels good and I am playing 80 minutes each game. I want to go round again and then the idea is to go into coaching full-time after that.”
Morrison, who is looking forward to Saturday’s derby with Cas’ with eager anticipation, also wants to give out-going coach John Kear a good send-off.
“John has only got three games left and we want to send him out on a good note and we want to give the fans, who have been so loyal this year, something to cheer about.
“Also, we need to get off the foot of the table. Wakefield have never finished bottom and that’s a record we want to continue.”
