Wakefield sign Hasson after just four games for Salford

James Hasson Wakefield

Wakefield have signed Irish international forward James Hasson from Salford until the end of the season.

Hasson only joined the Red Devils from Parramatta in May and has made just four appearances for Ian Watson’s men.

The 25-year-old previously played for Manly Sea Eagles, where he made 39 appearances, but his career has stuttered since the end of 2015.

Wakefield head coach Chris Chester said: “I am delighted to have secured James, he is a player that I have been interested in for some time now and fortunately he became available.

“He’ll be a great addition to Trinity and he will provide us with great competition for places in our squad going into the Super 8s competition.”

Hasson commented on his swift move from Salford: “I am very excited to join Wakefield, I know a fair few of the lads here which helps with the move. I am going into a bit of the unknown but the club are in a good position in the table and I have been fortunate to watch Trinity’s style of play against Widnes ahead of training on Monday.

“I have known Chris for a couple of years and I am fortunate that I am now able to work under him and hopefully I can impress and make it all worth it over the next couple of months.”
