Wakefield fullback Max Jowitt is hopeful of a return in the pre-season friendly against Sheffield as he recovers from a shoulder injury.
After a lengthy spell out on the side lines with a shoulder complaint, Jowitt is just focused on making his comeback.
The 19-year old had a promising season last year and made an important contribution for Chris Chester’s side.
“I just wanted to get this shoulder fixed up and start playing as soon as really,” he told Love Rugby League.
“Hopefully I can get a friendly in so Sheffield at home is the aim.
“I am way ahead of where I should be so it’s going really well.”
Whilst the fullback has been out, Trinity signed Scott Grix from Huddersfield and Jowitt admitted it has been good to train alongside an experienced player like him.
Grix, 32, was previously at Wakefield for two years before leaving to join the Giants.
“I have learned a lot of stuff from him,” Jowitt said.
“He is also really easy to get along with.”
Trinity finished eighth last season and qualified for the Super 8s which is achievable once again in 2017, according to Jowitt.
“I think we’re aiming to get into top eight,” he said.
“Chris Chester has recruited some really good players.
“I think we’re all bonding really well in training and it has shown in the two friendlies that we’ve had so far.”
