Wakefield re-sign Fifita

Wakefield have re-signed Australian forward David Fifita to a new one-year deal.

Fifita joined Trinity from Cronulla mid-season this year.

The prop has attracted offers from other Super League clubs and NRL sides, but has decided to commit to Wakefield.

Fifita made 13 appearances for Trinity over the past five months, including the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup semi-final against Warrington Wolves.

The Australian who has represented Tonga has scored two tries in his short spell at the club.

Fifita said: “I am really excited to get an extra year under my belt at Wakefield.

“It is a fantastic club with a great set of fans and I cannot wait to get back into pre season and get back out there on that field to repay all of their continued support.”

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: “I am delighted that David (Fifita) has agreed a new contract with us, especially as I know how much this means to the Wakefield supporters.

“He is an important member of the squad who adds a lot of passion into the side with his big personality both on and off the field.

“I know that he has got a lot more to show us this coming year and I am looking forward to working along side him in 2017.”
