In this day and age of rugby league, when players retire or step down from playing duties, more often than not, they are rewarded with an off-field role in some capacity – and for former Wakefield Wildcats player Ryan Hudson, he is in that boat.
The 32-year old, who recently retired from the Superleague, has been appointed as the new Youth Development Manager at Wakefield, a role that he is looking forward to.
Hudson is a qualified personal trainer, sports nutritionist and clinical hypnotherapist.
â€œI am really excited about the future,â€ said Hudson.
â€œI am looking forward to helping the kids and working with the youth development to see them develop into full-time, first-team players which will be great.â€
