FULL-back Motu Tony has signed a new deal with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats that will keep him at the club for a second year and have the option of a third.

The 29-year-old Samoan only arrived at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium this season and has seen his appearances limited due to a hand injury sustained at the start of the year.

But the club has kept faith with the former Hull FC man by offering him a new deal to remain in the red, white and blue for the start of 2012.

Wildcats chairman Andrew Glover said: “After an unfortunate injury at the beginning of the season Motu hasn’t been able to play as many games as we’d have hoped this year. Now back to full fitness I am confident the best is yet to come from him.

“He is a talented full back with a lot of big game experience that will provide guidance and maturity to the squad. I’m very pleased that we have kept hold of Motu for another year and with the option of a contract extension I’m confident that we will see some top class Rugby League from this player.”

Tony said: “I’ve really enjoyed this year here at Wakefield so far, it’s a great club to be at and I’m looking forward to working hard and cementing my first team spot.”

“I’d like to thank James and Andrew for giving me the opportunity to stay and I can’t wait for this exciting new season to begin.”
