Robins and Trinity confirm swap deal
28 Mar 2023
Hull KR and Wakefield Trinity have confirmed a swap deal which has seen Will Dagger depart the Robins to join Trinity, whilst Corey Hall moves in the opposite direction.
Currently the Robins' longest serving player, Dagger joins Wakefield ending his 5-year association with the club as he searches for consistent game time at fullback. He joins Trinity until the end of the 2024 season.
Corey Hall is a welcomed addition to Hull KR's three-quarter line and will be in prime position to develop his game alongside the Robins' seasoned centres, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Tom Opacic.
Hull KR Head Coach, Willie Peters paid tribute to Dagger ahead of his move to Wakefield: "It was a good opportunity for both players. Firstly, for Dags' (Will Dagger) to be able to play first grade every week. I think it's an important move for him at this stage in his career and we've given him that opportunity.
"On behalf of the club I'd like to thank Will for his contribution to Hull KR and what he's brought to the team on and off the field."
Trinity head coach Mark Applegarth added: "First of all, I'd like to thank Corey for his brilliant service to Wakefield Trinity. It's been no secret that we have been on the search for a fullback, so we have reluctantly let Corey move onto new pastures at Hull KR to be able to bring Will in. As a club, we wish Corey nothing but the best.
"I'm delighted Will is on board with us and I'm looking forward to getting him into training and to start working with him. He will certainly add to our squad in that fullback role with his ability and skillset, and I know that he is really excited to be linking up with us."
