Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are thrilled to have secured the signing of David Fifita.
Fifita, 26, who has represented both Tonga and Indigenous All Stars has penned a deal with Trinity which will see him in the red, white and blue jersey until the end of the season with an option of another year.
The prop makes the move to the Super League from NRL side Cronulla Sharks linking back up with his former team mates Anthony Tupou and Tinirau Arona.
Having featured 19 times for the Sharks since joining them back in 2014 from Elite One Championship side Lezignan Sangliers, he has shown a lot of potential and will now go into Chester’s thoughts of securing a spot in the 19-man squad for the remainder seven fixtures of the regular season.
Chris Chester has expressed his delight at securing Fifita saying, “It is a massive signing for the club, as a player we monitored closely over the last six to eight weeks, we know he will bring some real punch and aggression to the team which is something we have lacked over recent weeks.
“I am looking forward to working with David over the coming months. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Phil Moss and the Cronulla board for releasing David half way through the season.”
