This could be a year of progression for Wakefield, who only had Halifax behind them last term.
It's a more settled club now, with coach Shane McNally finally being given the thumbs-up to stay for another year.
Trinity might consider top six beyond them, but they should be able to stay well clear of any relegation battle.
Any improvement will be a great reward for the likeable and hard-working McNally, who has recruited very well.
Sid Domic was a stand-out performer at Warrington and he's just the kind of player Wakefield will benefit from.
Hard-working, tough and with more than a little class, he will set a fine example at Belle Vue.
Domic will set the standards on the field. Following in the footsteps of Adrian Vowles, he's a 'do as I do' kind of player.
