Wakefield Trinity target’s future confirmed

James Tamou’s future has been confirmed this morning.

The prop has had a stellar career in the NRL which was believed to be coming to an end as he prepared to leave the Wests Tigers.

There was plenty of Super League interest however with Wakefield Trinity keen on bringing the prop in.

However, the men from Belle Vue were trumped by a return to North Queensland Cowboys on a one-year deal which has been confirmed this morning by the club.

Tamou was a Grand Final with the Cowboys back in 2015 as they beat rivals Brisbane Broncos.

Tamou departed North Queensland for Penrith following the 2016 season and appeared in 97 games for the Panthers between 2017-20. He spent the previous two seasons with the Wests Tigers and was captain of both clubs, including the Panthers 2020 grand final team.

“We are excited to be able to add a player of James’ experience to our roster at this late stage, just prior to the commencement of our pre-season,” Cowboys General Manager of Football Micheal Luck said.

“He will bring professionalism and a strong work ethic, while also adding significant depth to our forward pack.

“James will be a wonderful influence for our excellent group of young forwards.”

Wakefield may have missed out on Tamou but haven’t messed around and have reportedly signed former Gold Coast Titans and Melbourne Storm forward Kevin Proctor on a “very lucrative deal” for 2023.

So, there’s still reasons for Wakefield fans to be excited as a new era rolls around at Belle Vue.
