Newcastle have completed the signing of young Wakefield forward Brad Walker on a season-long loan deal.
The 21-year-old only signed for Trinity at the weekend after being released by Widnes, but will spend 2020 in the North East.
A versatile back rower, Walker made 40 appearances in total during his time with the Vikings and so adds experience to Simon Finnigan’s squad.
Thunder head coach Finnigan said: “Brad is someone who will certainly add to our style of play he will fit in with our group very well. I would also like to thank Wakefield for making this loan possible I’m sure it will benefit both clubs.“
