Castleford Tigers’ half-back Liam Finn has made the switch to rivals Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

The 31 year-old, who has signed a two-year deal, previously had a stint with the Wildcats in the 2004/05 season before he moved to Championship side Featherstone Rovers.

He made history in the sport, setting a new world record of 41 consecutive goals while at Rovers, and joined Dewsbury Rams before moving back to Featherstone Rovers in 2010.

The Irish international made a return to the Super League in 2013 when he signed a deal at Castleford.

Finn said: “I spoke to Michael Carter, Brian Smith and Stu Dickens and I really liked what they had to say and what they thought about me.

“I want to come back and put a few wrongs right from the last time I was here as it didn’t really work out for me when I was younger.

“I’m looking forward to working with an experienced coach like Brian, it will be interesting to see what he does differently to other coaches.

“I’m hoping that my role as half-back will add some organisation and control into the side and will hopefully get the best out of the team moving forward.”
