Wakefield have announced the signing of one of Wigan’s international stars on loan terms until the end of the season.

Morgan Escare, who can slot in at full-back, in the halves or on the wing, arrives having struggled to command a regular spot in the Warriors squad in recent weeks.

He said: “I’m looking forward to getting some game time and helping Wakefield in the last five games.

“I’ve not played much this season at Wigan and I feel fresh and ready to go for Trinity.

“Hopefully I get the chance this week to run out in front of the Trinity fans and give my all for the team.”

Coach Chris Chester added: “It gives us a big boost as we head into the last five weeks.

“Morgan will add plenty of competition across the backline and inject some energy and pace into the squad.”
