Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are proud to announce that Ben Jones-Bishop will be wearing the Red, White & Blue in 2016, having signed for the club on a one-year deal.
Jones-Bishop arrives at the Wildcats after a year with Salford Red Devils in which he made 25 appearances with the club, scoring 16 tries.
Prior to signing for the Red Devils, the 27-year old enjoyed a six-year stint with Leeds Rhinos, which included a fantastic season on-loan at Harlequins RL in 2010 where he had a tremendous strike rate of 11 tries in 18 appearances. He is a vastly experienced and proven Super League back which is highlighted by the fact he has won two Grand Final's in 2011 and 2012 with the Rhinos.
Comfortable at either wing or full-back, Jones-Bishop is sure to play a key part in the Trinity charge during 2016 alongside new signings such as Anthony Tupou, Liam Finn and Anthony England.
Speaking on his move to Belle Vue, Jones-Bishop said: “I am very excited about the challenge that lies ahead at Wakefield and playing a role in helping the club build for the future.
“I am looking forward to playing alongside my teammates, but I am also looking forward to developing and improving areas of my game working under Brian Smith.”
Wildcats Head Coach Brian Smith is delighted to have secured the signing of Jones-Bishop and is looking forward to seeing him combine with the likes of Anthony Tupou, Jacob Miller and Liam Finn.
"The Signing of Ben Jones-Bishop is another highlight of our preparations for progress in Super League in 2016." Smith said.
"Young, fast and coming back home to West Yorkshire add a great feel to the qualities Ben will bring to our team."
"The try scoring and try saving potential through his speed and anticipation is an exciting prospect for all in the Wildcats army. Personally, I can't wait to start working on the attacking combinations for Ben with players like Anthony Tupou with his offloads, Jacob Miller's stepping breaks and the crafty passes and kicks of Liam Finn."
"This latest addition of talent and speed continues the Wildcats growth for the huge season ahead."
