Wakefield have confirmed that Bill Tupou has inked an extension to his current contract which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2018 season.
The 25-year-old is currently recovering from an ankle injury, and is expected to add to his three appearances this season once his rehabilitation is complete.
“I am very happy, it was a very easy decision for me and my partner. I came here around June last year and everything just clicked from there,” the centre told his club’s official website.
“Chezza [Chris Chester] is a good coach, he has brought the team together and by the looks of it everyone wants to stay because of him, everyone is performing because of Chezza.
“I don’t think I have played for him yet with my injury but he has seen a few of my games and he wants me to stay on. It is very pleasing for me and my partner and I am looking forward to staying on for the next few years.”
Trinity coach Chris Chester is very pleased that a player of such quality has committed his future to the club.
“I am delighted that Bill has put pen to paper, he’s an important part of our team and I am looking forward to see him return to action in the next week or so,” he said.
“Once again this shows us how important it is for us to keep all of our best players to move forward as a club; Bill will play a big part in this team over the next couple of years.”
