Wakefield Trinity outside back Bill Tupou has signed a deal which will keep him at the Beaumont Legal Stadium until 2020.

He has made 45 appearances for the West Yorkshire club, crossing the whitewash 15 times.

“I am very happy to have signed a new deal, myself and my partner are very happy here in Wakefield,” Tupou told the Wakefield website.

“I am excited to stay here at the club, it has been a great two years, the boys and coaching staff are always in high spirits and are there for me so I am looking forward to the next three years.”

Wakefield coach Chris Chester added: “I am pleased that we have been able to secure the services of Bill Tupou for a further three years,”

“He has had an outstanding season adding some great depth to the squad. I look forward to see him grow as a player and working alongside him in the future.”
