Wakefield Trinity secure ex-Gold Coast Titans prop Jai Whitbread
He has joined the West Yorkshire club on a one-year deal with the option for a second.
Having started training with Willie Poching’s side, he said: “It’s been unreal so far – the lads have been very welcoming and I’m enjoying being in training.
“My time at Leigh has given me an insight into what I can expect playing in Super League and I’m really looking forward to it.
“It’s a high-paced game, there are plenty of offloads and the ball is always in play.
“It’s a really enjoyable brand of footy to play and watch, so I’m just ready to get ripped in now and can’t wait for it.”
Poching added: “It’s not often you get someone of Jai’s NRL experience and age on our doorstep.
“So, when the chance came to meet and speak to him, I was taken by his demeanour, size and his will to keep developing and have a big impact on our team and club.
“He is a good young man, who as a player has a great skill set for a big fella, and he will complement and enhance the style we want to implement next season.”
