Thomas Minns says he is buzzing to be at Wakefield after signing with the club for the 2022 Super League campaign.

The 27-year-old has a wealth of top flight experience after spells with Leeds, Hull KR and London Broncos. 

He signed a permanent contract with the club earlier this week following a successful trial. 

Minns had signed with Newcastle Thunder for the 2022 campaign from Featherstone. However, the Championship side granted a release from his contract to join Trinity on a trial.

He featured in the centres for Wakefield on Boxing Day against Leeds. His pre-season performance saw him rewarded with a one-year deal with the club for 2022.

Thomas Minns back in Super League

“I’m absolutely buzzing,” he said. 

“It’s a massive thing for me and my family to get back into Super League and it’s something that I’ve been aiming towards.

“As you know, I signed a two-year deal at Newcastle which I didn’t go through with due to family reasons and being away from my young family was starting to affect us. 

“I came over to Wakefield and loved every minute. I worked with Willie previously at Hull KR and he makes you work hard for things; he doesn’t just hand things over on a plate, and to be rewarded with a contract is something I’m pleased with because I know that I have earned that contract so I’m happy with it.”
