Wakefield sign Tautai


Wakefield have signed Australian prop Taulima Tautai after his release from Parramatta Eels.

Tautai, 25, has made over 70 appearances in the NRL and has joined the Wildcats until the end of 2014 season.

He said: “I can’t wait.  It’s a good opportunity for a new start and I’m looking forward to it.  I want to give something back to Wakefield and establish a career for myself in Super League.

“I’m really excited, the game is really fast paced and physical over there so I think it’ll suit my game.  I watched the Wakefield vs. Catalan game on TV recently and there’s some big boys over there.”

The Australian-born Tautai started his career as a back but as established himself as one of the NRL‘s top forwards during spells with Parramatta and Cronulla. 

He said: “I started my career out on the wing but I like to be involved, get my hands on the ball, make tackles and go looking for work so I enjoy playing in the middle.

“I spoke to Timmy (Smith) and he gave Wakefield a massive rap.  He said the team’s really good, it’s a good bunch of boys and he’s really enjoying it.  I spoke with Richard Agar too and I just can’t wait to get over now.”

Wakefield take on Castleford at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday as part of Super League‘s Magic Weekend.
