Tim Smith has returned to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on loan from Salford Red Devils for the remainder of the First Utility Super League season.

Smith, 29, was sold to the Devils last August having made 48 Super League appearances in a little under two years in the red, white and blue.

He played an integral part in Trinity’s run to the play-offs at the end of 2012, contributing 34 try assists as the Wildcats surged into the top eight with seven successive victories and he was named Wildcats’ Man of Steel and Members’ Player of the Year at the end of the season.

The former Wigan and Parramatta man has featured 12 times for Salford in 2014, crossing for two tries, and will give Trinity’s new head coach James Webster another creative option ahead of his first game in charge against London Broncos on Friday evening.
