Wakefield bring in Romain Navarrete on loan from Wigan

Wakefield have signed prop Romain Navarrete on a season-long loan from Wigan.

The 25-year-old has made 60 appearances for the Warriors since 2017. He has earned three caps for France.

Wigan coach Adrian Lam said: “With so many quality middles fighting for a place in the squad every week, opportunities for Romain appear limited.

“The experience of 2019 has meant that younger players are now that year older and more physically developed and they will be pushing hard for spots in the squad each week based on merit, not on the default of injuries.

“After in depth consideration, the conclusion was that Romain will benefit playing for another club in 2020. We wish him well and will be keeping a close eye on his performances from afar.”

Wakefield coach Chris Chester commented: “I’m delighted to get Romain in for the 2020 season.

“He’s a tough and aggressive middle unit that has a wealth of experience in Super League, despite being only 25.

“He’ll add some depth to the pack and I’m looking forward to working with him throughout the year.”
