For me the most impressive of those is rugged hooker Terry Newton. One of only a small group of players to have played in all 15 seasons of Super League, Newton arrives from West Yorkshire rivals Bradford. Often described as a firebrand, he's very hotheaded and does occasionally lose his discipline, but that comes from an intense will to win, something that no doubt he'll have instilled into his new team mates.
Also enrolling in his first season with the Wildcats is utility player Paul Johnson. He'll have fond memories of London - scoring a hat trick while playing for Great Britain against New Zealand, at Loftus Road in 2005. Since then his career hasn't quite hit the same heights, with various injuries playing a role in that, but with 12 GB caps to his name, at 31 years old Johnson brings even more experience to the squad.
Even with their exciting new signings, Wakefields star man is someone who is entering his third year at the club. Former Scotland Captain Danny Brough is the driving force behind the Wildcats. Exceptionally quick and surprisingly strong for a scrum half, Brough boasts the best all round kicking game in Super League. Quins found this out the hard way last year, when his last minute touchline conversion stole a win at Belle Vue.
It's interesting to note that at the start of the season, most bookies usually have Quins and Wakefield around the same price to win the Super League. This year the Wildcats are half the odds that Quins are, a large hint at the expectations of both clubs. But as all Rugby League fans know, with a new season comes new surprises and dramas to unfold, potentially starting with this Saturday at the Twickenham Stoop.
