Wakefield Stadium Update

Wakefield chairman John Minards has told Rugby League Live, plans to rebuild the East Stand at the Be Well Support Stadium are going to schedule.

He told Rugby League Live: “I don’t think that will take too long now, perhaps a couple of weeks, so everything is proceeding to plan and to the agreed timetable. The next step will be moving to groundworks and, while I’m no engineer, it will then be about laying the foundations and building the new East Stand.”

Sosaia Feki delighted to make comeback

Castleford winger Sosaia Feki has spoken of his delight at making a Super League appearance for Castleford, after an injury-riddled three years.
