World Cup scrum-half joins Wakefield

Wakefield have further strengthened their squad ahead of the 2014 season by signing Samoan playmaker Pita Godinet.

Godinet, 25, has been released by New Zealand Warriors to make the move to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, after three years at the NRL club.

Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, Godinet chose to represent Samoa and he played in all four of their matches at the recent World Cup, scoring two tries.

Also comfortable at hooker, Godinet will play at scrum-half for the Wildcats after being handed the number 7 jersey.

Wakefield head coach Richard Agar is delighted with the signing, and he had this to say on the club’s official website:

“He is a skilful player and I think he will make a big impact. He will also give us cover at six or nine.

“Half-backs are at a premium and it is a difficult time of the season to try and sign new players so I am delighted we have signed him and I certainly think he will add something to our squad.”
