Samoa star Mason Lino “a real key signing” for Wakefield

Wakefield coach Chris Chester has ended his search for a new half-back with the signing of Samoa international Mason Lino.

The 26-year-old former Newcastle Knights player will join Trinity on a three-year deal starting in 2021, helping to plug the gap created by the departure of Danny Brough.

Chester, who failed in a bid to bring Canberra half-back Sam Williams back to Belle Vue, said: โ€œMason will be a real key signing for us as we approach 2021.

โ€œHe is a real tough competitor and will guide us around the park, whilst also possessing an impressive kicking game and some quick feet.

โ€œAt 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.โ€

Lino said: โ€œIโ€™m very excited. Iโ€™ve been following the team and I canโ€™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.

โ€œSuper League was always something I wanted to have a crack at and it was a goal to come over.โ€
