Prop Scott Anderson has extended his stay at the Wildcats until the end of 2016.
The 28-year old arrived at the start of the 2014 campaign on a one-year deal after more than 70 first grade games in the NRL for Melbourne Storm and Brisbane Broncos.
He has featured in 11 of Trinity’s opening 13 First Utility Super League games and been a consistent performer in the Wildcats pack and earned himself an extended stay at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
Anderson was pleased to secure his future and is out to build on a solid start to life in the northern hemisphere.
“It’s been pretty short negotiations because I’m really enjoying myself here at Wakefield so I’m excited,” said Anderson.
“It was a little bit of a slow start because I didn’t have a pre-season under my belt but getting a few games and getting the game time I think I’m starting to show some good football.
“Scott’s had a promising start for us and been pretty consistent throughout,” said Wildcats head coach, Richard Agar.
“He’s shown his experience, carried the ball really well for us and fitted into our organisation well.
“He’s a tough kid and we think he’ll get better. It’s a different style to what he probably played in at his previous clubs but we think he’s coming good and we’ve been happy with his performances.”
The Wildcats can also announce that Peter Fox has left the club by mutual consent. Fox was in the final year of his contract at the club and had scored 45 tries in 84 Super League appearances for the club in two spells.
Agar commented: “We’d decided that we wouldn’t be re-signing Peter for next year and for a player of his experience, we’d give him the opportunity to look elsewhere with the view to him bagging a contract for next year.
“We really thank him for his efforts. Every time he crosses the stripe, you know he’s going to give you his best, whether that be on the training field or in a match, Peter gives you everything he’s got.
“The part he’s played since I’ve been here in building the club back up, he played a big part in that on the field and off the field. We really wish him well in his new venture.”
You’ll be able to hear more from Anderson and Agar on the Wildcats Audioboo channel later this morning.
