Wakefield land Newcastle Knights hooker

Wakefield Trinity have signed Australian hooker Tyler Randell from next season.

The 24-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the club having made just short of 50 NRL appearances with the Newcastle Knights.

Trinity head coach Chris Chester confirmed the signing following today’s defeat against St Helens.

“I am delighted to secure the services of Tyler for two years, his position is one that we identified at the start of the season that we did not have a great deal of depth,” said Chester.

“By bringing in Tyler, it will bring in a genuine competition and add quality to what is already a strong squad.”
