Wakefield fan favourite David Fifita pens contract extension

David Fifita is set to finish his career at Wakefield after signing a new deal which will see him remain at Trinity until the end of 2022.

The ‘big bopper’ joined Wakefield from Cronulla Sharks in 2016 and has been one of Trinity’s star performers over the last couple of seasons.

Fifita currently sits top of the Steve Prescott Man of Steel rankings and has built up a solid reputation of being one of the best prop forwards in Super League.

On his new deal, Fifita said: “It’s great to be here for a number of years.

“I just couldn’t leave Wakefield. For what they’ve given me and what the fans have given me, I just want to give something back to them. My goal now is to bring a trophy to this club.

“The bond between the players is something I’ve never had with any other club. Everyone comes into one and we’re all one group.

“Whenever we get a new signing, everyone just embraces the culture. It’s what I love about this club and I just can’t wait for the journey ahead.”

Wakefield chief executive Michael Carter commented: “It’s fantastic news for the club that we’ve managed to secure Big Dave for another three years. It’s a real statement of intent of where we want to be.

“I’d say this is one of the biggest deals in the clubs history. Dave has been fantastic for us over the last few years and I’m looking forward to seeing him score plenty of tries down the left wing for us in the future!

“I would also like to thank Dave’s agent, Craig Harrison, for helping get this deal concluded.”
