Will Oakes


5 ft 11 in
Date of Birth:
92 kg
Place of Birth:
Halifax, West Yorkshire

One of the brightest young talents in the sport, Oakes is a regular England Academy international and a stand-out performer at under-19s level, leading to a handful of first team appearances despite him only being 18 at the start of the season.

It’s his pace and physical strength that separates him from many other players of the same age, with the winger a natural finisher and a real threat out wide.

Watch out for him making more appearances in Super League this season after he finished last year with two tries against a strong Warrington Wolves side.
