York bring in duo from Wakefield

York have signed young duo Daniel Barcoe and Harry Dodd from Wakefield for 2021.

Hooker or half-back Barcoe, 20, and forward Dodd, 19, both came through the academy at Trinity and have played reserve-grade rugby.

York coach James Ford said: “Dan is a very lively hooker or half back who has come highly recommended to us from Mark Applegarth (Mash) at Wakefield Trinity.

“Mash was particularly positive around his character and his drive to be the best version of himself. Danny will be one of three hookers and he’s excited to learn and compete for a spot in our 17.

“Harry is a young man that I’m really excited about working with. He demonstrated a high level of potential in Wakefield’s reserve side and I was very impressed with his maturity, commitment and drive when I met him.

“Harry will be competing with some experienced forwards for an opportunity, and it will be exciting to watch him develop and compete for a starting spot.”
