Wakefield coach Chris Chester has ended his search for a new half-back with the signing of Samoa international Mason Lino.
Chester, who failed in a bid to bring Canberra half-back Sam Williams back to Belle Vue, said: “Mason will be a real key signing for us as we approach 2021.
“He is a real tough competitor and will guide us around the park, whilst also possessing an impressive kicking game and some quick feet.
“At 26, Mason has his prime years ahead of him and the Trinity fans will certainly enjoy watching him in the red, white and blue over the next three years.”

Lino said: “I’m very excited. I’ve been following the team and I can’t wait to get over and get to work.
“It felt like it was a really good move for me to come over and hopefully I can make a big contribution to the team.
“Super League was always something I wanted to have a crack at and it was a goal to come over.”
