Wakefield have signed former England full-back Jamie Shaul from Hull on loan for the rest of the Super League season.

The 30-year-old will provide cover for the injured Max Jowitt, who will be sidelined for a few weeks with a hamstring injury.

Shaul has scored 105 tries in 195 games for hometown club Hull since making his first team debut in 2013.

Wakefield coach Willie Poching said: “It’s fantastic to be able to bring Jamie Shaul in.

“He’s a winner and he knows what success looks like. Hopefully his energy and his experience will be infectious on us and we’re very fortunate to be able to bring someone like him in at this stage of the season.

“Jamie is excited by the challenge that lies ahead of us and he’s more than ready to roll his sleeves up and help in our push to go forward.”

A Hull statement read: “The club would like to wish Jamie all the best for the remainder of the season with Wakefield.”

Jamie Shaul in line for Wakefield debut

The former England international had his first training session with Trinity on Wednesday morning. He is in contention to make his Wakefield debut when they welcome champions St Helens on Sunday afternoon.

Shaul will wear the number 38 jersey for Wakefield, who currently sit rock bottom of the Super League table.

Trinity have eight games left in their fight for Super League survival. They have to place champions Saints twice and Challenge Cup holders Wigan.

The other five games come against Castleford, Catalans, Hull, Hull KR and Huddersfield.

They are currently level on points with Toulouse in the Super League table, but are rock bottom on points difference.
