Wakefield sign French fullback

Wakefield Trinity have confirmed the signing of French fullback Tony Gigot until the end of 2021.

Gigot signed for Toronto Wolfpack on trial terms earlier this year, after being released by Catalans Dragons.

At Catalans, he helped them to the Challenge Cup in 2018, and also won the Lance Todd Trophy for Man of the Match after the final against Warrington.

He told the club website: “I’m really happy to be here.”

“I received a call from my manager and he said Wakefield would like to speak to me, so I spoke with Chris and Michael and it’s a great club to come to.

“(With the lockdown) it’s been a long break for me and I’m just happy to get a chance to be back on the field and helping Wakefield Trinity.”

Head Coach Chris Chester added: “To be honest, I’m over the moon because he’s a player that I have admired over the last few years.

“I tried to sign him when I was at Hull KR and when we found out he was going to be available again we jumped at the chance.”
