Tangata secures Wakefield loan move

Wakefield Trinity have signed prop forward Adam Tangata on a season-long loan from Championship side Halifax.

The 28-year-old, who has also played for Widnes Vikings, joined Trinity on loan last season and made five appearances for the club.

Tangata, who has been named in the Cook Islands squad for their important World Cup qualifier against USA, is delighted to be back at Trinity.

He told the club website: “I enjoyed my time here last year. I only played a handful of games but I was keen to stay on for 2020.
