Ben Jones-Bishop signs for Wakefield

Wakefield have confirmed that Ben Jones-Bishop has signed a one-year deal with the club for the 2016 season.

The 27-year-old winger or full-back made 25 appearances for Salford in 2015, scoring 16 tries.

“I am very excited about the challenge that lies ahead at Wakefield and playing a role in helping the club build for the future,” he told his new club’s official website.

“I am looking forward to playing alongside my teammates, but I am also looking forward to developing and improving areas of my game working under Brian Smith.”

Trinity coach Brian Smith is delighted to have added a player of such pedigree to his squad for next season.

“The signing of Ben Jones-Bishop is another highlight of our preparations for progress in Super League in 2016,” he said.

“Young, fast and coming back home to West Yorkshire add a great feel to the qualities Ben will bring to our team.

“The try scoring and try saving potential through his speed and anticipation is an exciting prospect for all in the Wildcats army. Personally, I can’t wait to start working on the attacking combinations for Ben with players like Anthony Tupou with his offloads, Jacob Miller‘s stepping breaks and the crafty passes and kicks of Liam Finn.

“This latest addition of talent and speed continues the Wildcats growth for the huge season ahead.”
