Administrators' Sale Of Sam Obst To Hull FC

While we are sad to see Sam leave Wakefield, we're proud of the service that he's given to the Club and wish him well. We also recognise that his leaving frees up a quota spot in the squad that will allow us, once we have full control of the Club, to bring in a new front row player.

Work on the legal agreements around our purchase is still ongoing and the final written approval for Andrew Glover under the RFL's "fit and proper person test" is currently awaited.

The Company will issue a further announcement regarding the deal with the administrators once it has been finalised.
