Jai Whitbread is aiming for silverware following his new long-term deal with club Wakefield Trinity.

The back-rower has signed a new three-year contract that will keep him at Belle Vue until the end of the 2025 campaign.

Whitbread, 24, joined Trinity ahead of the 2022 season from Leigh on an initial one-year deal.

He made 23 appearances in his first season at the club, scoring two tries. He has made a total of 25 appearances in the Super League competition since making the switch from the NRL.

Whitbread has paid tribute to the fans’ support throughout the season, highlighting them as a main reason for his new deal. The former Gold Coast Titans youngster says he is also hungry for silverware following the new deal.

Jai Whitbread: ‘Collectively, you want silverware’

“The fan base was massive for me last year,” he said.

“It’s an unreal feeling when you’re out there and the crowd are behind you. And when the team are playing well too, it creates a massive buzz.

“There were loads of good moments last year that I want to experience again in the coming seasons and I’m really looking forward to that.

“Personally, I want to just play my best football for the club and see where that takes me. Collectively, you want silverware. I really want to strive to build something and work towards getting some silverware.”
