Wakefield Trinity Wildcats bring Ryan Hudson in as coach

Wakefield have appointed Ryan Hudson as the club's youth development coach.

The 32-year-old retired from playing earlier this month after four years with Castleford Tigers.

Hudson, who made 51 appearances for the Wildcats as player in the 2000 and 2001 seasons, told the club website:  "I am really excited about the future.

"I am looking forward to helping the kids and working with the youth development to see them develop into first team players."
