Warrington linked with Wakefield prop

Warrington Wolves are being strongly linked with a move for Wakefield prop David Fifita.

The 29-year-old has reportedly been identified as a main target by Steve Price, who is still looking to bolster his forward pack ahead of 2019.

Fifita joined Trinity midway through the 2016 season and has gone on to become a firm fans favourite at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, scoring eight tries in over 50 appearances.

He is under contract until the end of next season, meaning the Wolves would likely have to pay a fee to secure his services.

Should he make the move to Cheshire, Fifita would become Wire’s fourth signing for next year, joining South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Jason Clark, London Broncos back rower Matt Davis and Canberra Raiders half Blake Austin.

He would also likely replace current props George King and Dom Crosby, who are both set to leave the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

King, brother of Warrington teammate Toby, is out of contract at the end of this season and has been strongly rumoured with a move to Wakefield.

Crosby is also out of contract and has reportedly joined Leeds Rhinos on loan for the rest of 2018, but will likely seek a more permanent destination for next year.
