Ben Jones-Bishop has signed for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on a one-year deal.

Jones-Bishop arrives at the Wildcats after a year with Salford Red Devils where he made 25 appearances and scored 16 tries.

The 27 year-old winger and full-back, who won two Grand Finals during his six-year stint with Leeds Rhinos, said: “I am very excited about the challenge that lies ahead at Wakefield and playing a role in helping the club build for the future.

“I am looking forward to playing alongside my teammates but I am also looking forward to developing and improving areas of my game working under Brian Smith.”

Wildcats boss Brian Smith said: “The signing of Ben Jones-Bishop is another highlight of our preparations for progress in Super League in 2016.

“The try-scoring and try-saving potential through his speed and anticipation is an exciting prospect for all in the Wildcats army.

“Personally, I can’t wait to start working on the attacking combinations for Ben with players like Anthony Tupou with his off-loads, Jacob Miller’s stepping breaks and the crafty passes and kicks of Liam Finn.”

“This latest addition of talent and speed continues the Wildcats’ growth for the huge season ahead.”
