Sio to stay with Wakefield

Forward Mikey Sio has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal which will see him stay with Wakefield until the end of the 2018 season.

Sio joined the Wildcats back in June 2015 on a one and a half year deal from the Mackay Cutters. The 22-year old has made over 24 appearances so far for Wakefield and scored seven tries, four of them this season.

“I am excited that I get to play at Belle Vue for another two years and be around pretty much the same group of players as what we have this year and build on what we have at the moment,” Sio said.

“I have enjoyed working under Chris, he has come in and put some structures in place and a lot of the boys are buying into it, it is reflective of our performance on the field. 

“I am excited that I am part of his plan for the next two years and I have the security that I will be a professional rugby player in the Super League for the next couple of years.”

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said Sio gives his team plenty of energy both on and off the field.

“He is an important part of our squad so I am pleased that we have got something sorted quickly,” he said.

“I am looking forward to working with him over the next couple of years.”
