Bill Tupou and Reece Lyne commit long-term futures to Wakefield

Centre duo Bill Tupou and Reece Lyne have both signed contract extensions with Wakefield.

Tonga star Tupou, 28, has signed a three-year deal with Trinity, keeping him at the Mobile Rocket Stadium until the end of 2022.

And England international Lyne, 26, has penned five-year contract that will see him remain at Wakefield until the end of the 2024 season.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester commented: “It’s great news for the club that both Bill and Reece have signed new contracts. 

“They’re both a massive part of the squad and have been getting better and better each season.

“They’ve been reaping the rewards for their performances over the years, with Reece getting in the England squad and Bill being selected for the Dream Team.

“Bill was in devastating form before his injury and we’re really pleased we’ve now got him back. To have them both commit their futures to the club is excellent news.”

Tupou said: “I’m very happy to be extending my stay here at the club.

“The team is growing in confidence and getting stronger year by year. I’m just looking forward to hopefully getting a bit of silverware in the next few years for the club.” 

Lyne added: “I’m over the moon to get the deal signed.

“It was a pretty straight forward decision. I love the club and the fans have been brilliant during my time here too. I’m determined to play a part in bringing a trophy to this great club in my time here. I class this club as my home.”
