Wood replaces Aussie Randell at Wakefield

Wakefield have signed Salford hooker/half-back Josh Wood on a two-year contract.

The 23-year-old fills the void created by the return to Australia of hooker Tyler Randell for family reasons and becomes Trinity coach Chris Chester's fifth recruit for 2020.

"He's a tough player is Josh and a really nice kid," said Chester.

"I'm looking forward to seeing him out there. He's got some decent deception at dummy-half. He's got a really good kicking game and for his size, he's a real tough defender."
