Three-quarters of Wakefield Trinity head to the Championship

The Dewsbury Rams have has confirmed the signing of center Ollie Greensmith from Wakefield Trinity on a one-year contract.

Greensmith, 20, is a product of the Wakefield Trinity Academy System and has previously represented the Lions of the England community.

He made his only Super League appearance in July against the Salford Red Devils, but most notably he was a mainstay of the Doncaster RLFC squad which reached the Betfred League One play-off final at Workington, having ultimately not promoted.

Commenting on his arrival, Greensmith said: “I am really delighted to sign at Dewsbury and it was a simple decision for me after speaking with Lee about the club and his training techniques.

“I think my time in Doncaster helped me develop physically as I had only played at academy level before and it gave me the experience of playing in high pressure games, this which is required to play Dewsbury.

“I look forward to the new challenges that come with playing at the championship level and look forward to proving myself to Lee Greenwood and the fans.”

Rams head coach Lee Greenwood added, “Ollie is a great prospect and we did well to have him. I was surprised to learn that he was not staying in Wakefield and I am glad he likes the sound of what we are trying to do here in Dewsbury.

“He was a remarkable performer in an unknown position on loan to Doncaster and it was his first taste of playing against men on a weekly basis.

“He’s a big, strong boy who has the potential to play in the Super League if he works hard.”
