Wakefield sign prop Smith

Wakefield have signed former Leeds academy prop Daniel Smith from South Sydney on a two-year deal.

Smith, 20, made 24 appearances for the Rabbitohs Under 20s team last season, and is a former Castleford Lock Lane amateur.

He said: “I’m really excited.  It’s a big opportunity for me and I’m going to grab it with both hands.

“I spoke to Richard (Agar) and he said there would be a big opportunity here and that’s what I want.

Australia was the best experience of my life.  It’s changed me massively on and off the field.  Mostly off the field and I’ve turned into a man, as they say.  Australia’s a great country and I loved it out there.

“I’m really looking forward to ripping in and getting a Wakefield jersey on.  I’m just looking to try and establish myself over here and do my best for Wakefield.”

Smith is a former England academy international, and fills the void left by Kyle Amor, who was sold to St Helens earlier in the close season.
