NEWLY-signed winger Semi Tadulala is aiming to inspire Wakefield Trinity Wildcats to “get back on track”.

After a spell playing rugby union at Leeds Carnegie, the 33 year-old is delighted to have switched codes and returned to the club he played for from 2004 to 2007. He said: “I am very happy to be back at Wakefield.

“I want to prove myself by doing what I love doing and that’s playing well each week.”

Wildcats entertain St Helens today, Sunday, having suffered heavy defeats in their last three Super League outings and Tadulala hopes he can help get Trinity back to winning ways.

He said: “I think I can bring something different to the team. We have eight games left and hopefully I can help to get us back on track.

“We have got so many young players and they need a bit of leadership.

“There is so much potential within the team but they are in the limelight now and they need to step up. I will do the best I can to help them out.”

Tadulala recognises that the visit of Saints will be a big test but he thinks Wakefield can surprise their opponents, saying: “They are going to be tough.

“We have to respect them but if we can stick to the game plan we can upset them.”
