Craig Kopczak pens new Wakefield deal

Craig Kopczak has agreed a new one-year contract with Wakefield, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2020 season.

The 32-year-old arrived at Trinity earlier in the off-season from Salford Red Devils and has played a key role in Wakefield’s start to the campaign.

A former Wales international, Kopczak has played in all six of Trinity’s games in Super League this season and even bagged a try on his debut.

On his contract extension, Kopczak said: “I have been made welcome from the first day and I’m really relishing the new environment.

“The group of lads we have here are all great and I’m loving every minute of my time here.

“It’s bringing the best out of me and I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. I’m excited to be part of an outstanding squad we have.”

On extending Kopczak’s deal, Wakefield coach Chris Chester commented: “He’s started the season exceptionally well for us and I would say he’s playing some of the best footy of his career too.

“He’s added a lot to the pack, and he is a really good guy to have around the place, so I’m delighted he’s extended his stay.”
