WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats have submitted their application to the Rugby Football League (RFL) for a three-year Super League franchise today.

Wildcats chairman Andrew Glover travelled to the RFL’s Red Hall base with head coach John Kear and club captain Glenn Morrison to formally submit the 700-page application.

Super League clubs have until Friday to submit their application for a new licence, lasting three years.

A statement from the club read: “We are all feeling quietly confident about our Super League future, as we all believe in the product we have and the strength of the new company.

“Saying that, we all have to try and keep our feet on the ground. As much as we would all like to forget about the previous company’s administration, it does have a significant bearing on our application, we just hope it’s not too much.

“Our plans moving forward do produce the sustainable business I wanted for the club, allowing us to spend to full salary cap, providing a great commercial package and as always delivering some fantastic work in the Wakefield community.”

The RFL is set to announce the name of one club currently outside Super League that will win one of the places in British rugby league’s top flight tomorrow.

Super League clubs will find out if their application has been successful in July.
