Centre/winger Bill Tupou has signed a new contract which will keep him at Wakefield Trinity until the end of the 2020 season.

The 27-year-old joined Trinity in July, 2015, from NRL side Canberra Raiders, initially on a deal until the end of that season.

“He has had an outstanding season adding some great depth to the squad. I look forward to see him grow as a player and working alongside him in the future.”
