Jeffries makes Wakefield return

Bradford half-back Ben Jeffries has agreed to re-join Wakefield on a three-year deal.

Jeffries first joined Wakefield in 2002 after spells at St. George Illawarra Dragons and West Tigers, and he was part of the side that avoided relegation in the final round of Super League XI.

The 28-year old made 143 appearances and scored 69 tries in his first spell with the Wildcats, before joining West Yorkshire neighbours Bradford in 2008.

In his two year stay at the Grattan Stadium Jeffries has played 45 times for the Bulls but now he is relishing a return to the Hearwell Stadium in 2010.

“It’s good to be coming back and I can’t wait to wear the Trinity colours once again,” said Jeffries.

“I’m joining the club to win silverware and with the other signings the club have made I think we have got a very good chance of doing that.”

“I’m looking forward to playing regularly and playing consistently good rugby back at the Wildcats.”

Wildcats Head Coach and Director of Football is looking forward to seeing the Aussie half-back in the red, white and blue of Wakefield once again and believes the club have got a player approaching his prime.

“I obviously know Ben from his time here first time round and I’m delighted to have him as a part of our squad for the next three years,” said the Wildcats Head Coach. 

“He is a very talented player with lots of Super League experience behind him and at 28 he still has his best years ahead of him.”

“Those best years are going to be at Wakefield and we look forward to him being a key part of the exciting squad we are assembling for Super League XV.”
