Samisoni Langi has joined Wakefield Trinity on a two-year deal after he rejected a move to Belle Vue in 2021.
So, why did he agree to join the French side ahead of 2023?
He explained as such: “I’m really looking forward to this new challenge and can’t wait to get over and start.
“I’ve had a few conversations with Mark and I am really looking forward to working with him. His coaching style and the way he wants us to play particularly excites me.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know the people of Wakefield, putting my best foot forward and proving to the supporters that I will fit right in. I’m ready now and can’t wait to rip in.”
So, coach Mark Applegarth was key and speaking himself on the move, the coach said:
“I’m really pleased to have Samisoni at the club,” said Applegarth.
“He is a player that I have admired for a number of years and I’m sure he will have a massive impact on our squad.
“He’s a proven player at this level and when we realised he was available, we made a move straight away.
“He will offer some good competiton for centre spots but he also provides plenty of versatility by being comfortable playing in other areas.
“Samisoni is a great coup for us and we can’t wait to work with him.”
