Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are delighted to announce that utility back Lee Smith has signed for the club on a deal until the end of the season.

Smith, 28, returns to Belle Vue after a spell with Aviva Premiership Rugby Union side, Newcastle Falcons and was an integral part of a Trinity side that made the play-off's in 2012, contributing six tries as the Wildcats surged into the top eight with seven successive victories.

The former England international, who made his name with the Leeds Rhinos, has in total played over 150 games in the blue and amber where he has been successful in winning silverware. Smith's versatility is highlighted by the fact he has won three Grand Finals, all playing in different positions whilst scoring in each Old Trafford appearance.

2008 was a memorable season for him as he picked up the Harry Sunderland Trophy in the Grand Final win over St Helens and was then called up to the England World Cup squad where he started with a hat-trick against Papua New Guinea.

Speaking on his move back to the Wildcats, Smith said:

"I'm really excited to be back here, the club have given me a great opportunity which I am very grateful for and hopefully I can reward them."

Chairman Michael Carter is happy to have Smith signed for the remainder of the season and he added:

"I'm delighted to welcome a player of Lee's class back to the club. I'm sure he will do well for us until the end of the season."
