“We would like to thank our tremendous fans, whose support and loyalty has been unwavering despite the recent uncertainty. They have shown that there is a tremendous appetite for rugby league in Wales and have stuck by the club through thick and thin.

“Everyone is really excited about the new season. We have some interesting commercial prospects off the field and the club hopes to announce some further positive news in the near future.
