Allgood: There is great potential at Wakefield

Wakefield forward Mitch Allgood has expressed his excitement at joining Trinity ahead of the 2017 season.

The 27-year old was previously at Hull KR before arriving at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on a one-year deal.

Allgood played 42 games for the Robins over the past two years.

“I think watching Wakefield play last season, especially in that mid-section they were outstanding,” he told Love Rugby League.

“The real test moving forward is being that team week in, week out.”

Allgood is one a number of forward signings Wakefield have made, including Craig Huby and Keegan Hirst.

The Australian, who can play in the front and second rows, said he was looking forward to fighting for his place in the team.

“Looking around there are a lot of front rowers in this team and all are worthy of playing Super League,” he said.

“I think that competition will make us play to the best of our ability.”

Before joining Chris Chester’s side, Allgood was part of the Rovers team that were relegated in the Million Pound Game against Salford

Allgood, who enjoyed his two seasons with Hull KR, said it was a really difficult time.

“It was one of the most challenging years of my career,” he admitted.

“That Million Pound Game was a pretty tough pill to swallow.”
