Craig Hall is one of James Webster's six new signings for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats this campaign.

The 26 year old has settled perfectly into the first team squad with only two weeks away from the start of the First Utility Super League season.

Hall has discussed ahead of the Gareth Ellis testimonial on Sunday against his old club Hull FC how he has become the favourite to take over the role as kicker after proving his ability during pre season friendly's, but also the reasons why he joined Wakefield Wildcats.

"I am enjoying it, from day one the lads have been good, I am fitting in pretty well and looking forward to the season."

"I have been trying to field a few combinations in training so I'm looking forward to it. Obviously me and Jacob are new, Tim is pretty good, he leads us around the park so we can play off him."

Hall also discussed how he has become the favourite to be the kicker after proving his ability during pre season friendly's. He said, "I just put my name down to be the kicker, I spoke to James asking if he had one for next year and then I just did a bit of practice over pre season and luckily they were going over."

He also spoke about the reason why he chose to join Wakefield saying, "I knew Washy from Hull, I spoke to him and he spoke highly of the club. I have also played a few games with James when we were at Widnes so I knew from that and spoke to him, he more or less told me he wanted me to be part of the team, which was great for me."

"At the time at Rovers I was playing here there and everywhere, I don't mind doing it for the team but I just wanted to get a position nailed down."

"It is always nice to play against your old club; I have played them in derby's over the past four years. I am just looking forward to getting another run out before the start of the season."
