Wakefield confirm Craig Kopczak capture

Wakefield have confirmed the signing of Craig Kopczak from Salford on a one-year contract.

The former Wales international has joined Trinity for the 2019 season after helping the Red Devils avoid relegation via The Qualifiers.

Kopczak made his debut for his hometown club Bradford Bulls back in 2006 and after spending six years there, he moved to Huddersfield Giants for three seasons and then to Salford.

On his move to Wakefield, Kopczak said: “I am excited and looking forward to a new challenge ahead.

“I can’t wait to be playing with a fantastic team. It is great to be back in Yorkshire and I am really looking forward to getting stuck in, meeting the lads and getting out there playing.”

On signing Kopczak, Wakefield coach Chris Chester added: “I am a big admirer of Craig and have been for a number of years.

“We have been chasing him for a very long time and finally the paperwork is all signed and sealed. I am delighted he has joined us for at least 12 months.”
