“I wasn’t ready” – Samisoni Langi explains why he rejected Wakefield Trinity in 2021

Samisoni Langi has joined Wakefield Trinity on a two-year deal.

He has now explained on Wakefield’s Twitter page that he is excited about the chance to work with new boss Mark Applegarth and his style of play:

“I’ve had a few conversations with Mark, he sounded very excited and positive and the style he wants to play, I think I would be very suited to that.”

It comes after Langi rejected a move to Wakefield in 2021. He explained why he did so:

“I guess 12 months ago I wasn’t quite ready to make that move over to England whereas now I am happy to make that move and make amends to all the fans and sponsors over there and prove to them that I will fit into the Wakefield community and bring my style of play.

“I wasn’t ready but I am ready now.”

It also sounds like Langi may not play the centre role he had at Catalans:

“I just love footy to be honest, doesn’t matter position wise. Centre I have made my own over the last few years but yeah I can play in the halves like when I first came over to Catalans, I can be a utility player, I’m versatile.

“I’ve got a different skillset, I wouldn’t mind showing that at Wakefield but if I’m needed at centre I’m happy to play there.”
