Wakefield loose forward Danny Washbrook has agreed a new 12-month contract to remain with the Wildcats in 2015.
The 28-year old has been a mainstay in the team since joining from Hull in 2012, appearing in all but three of a possible 78 Super League appearances in that time, and is the club's leading tackler this year.
I've really enjoyed it here. If you speak to any of the boys that are here or those that have left, they'll say it's the best group of lads they've played with throughout their career and I'd have to agree with that.
– Danny Washbrook
The players and the staff are really happy that Washy has agreed a new deal. He plays 80 minutes in the middle and it's important to have players like that in your squad, particularly as we'll be running with quite a small squad next year."
The 21-year-old former England academy international, joined from Hull 18 months ago, had over a year left on his current deal but has opted to extend his stay at Wakefield until the end of2017.
It's fantastic news that Reece wanted to extend his deal with us. He had a lot of interest from other places and realistically, you need to look at what Reece has done at the age of only 21. He's only going to get better.
Wakefield have signed Hull KR centre Craig Hall on a two-year contract.
The 26-year-old former Hull player will join up with the Wildcats at the end of the season when his contract with the Robins runs out.
"I've had four good years at Rovers and now I want to take my experience to a fresh start at Wakefield," said Hall.
"I've loved every minute at Rovers. It's the club I supported growing up so it's been a proud four years for me. Hopefully we can pick up some good results between now and the end of the season then I can have a good rest and really rip in to pre-season and have a big year next year."
Hall has spent his entire career on Humberside apart from a five-game loan spell at Widnes where he played alongside Wakefield head coach, James Webster.
"I'm delighted to get Craig on board for 2015," said Webster. "Craig is a player that possesses great speed and we feel that his all-round game and versatility will add plenty to our current squad."
Hull KR chief executive Mike Smith said: "I'd like to thank Craig for everything he has done for the club over the past four seasons.
"With Darrell Goulding joining us for next season and adding to the likes of Kris Welham, Liam Salter and Macauley Hallett who are already in the squad, we have plenty of options in the centres and can appreciate Craig's desire for regular first-team football at this stage of his career."
Leeds Rhinos captain Kevin Sinfield has been named in the 19 man squad to face Wakefield Wildcats on Friday.

Wakefield Wildcats forward Taulima Tautai is to join Super League champions Wigan in a deal effective from the end of the season.
The hard-hitting 26-year-old has agreed a three-year contract with Shaun Wane's side, with Wigan saying that his performance against them earlier this season brought him to their attention.
A statement said he impressed Wigan officials "with a series of strong performances early in the season, especially against the Warriors at the DW Stadium in March".
The Samoa international, who signed for Wakefield last season, has also played in the NRL with Parramatta and Cronulla.
I am excited for the opportunity of becoming a Wigan Warrior in 2015. I am looking forward to improving as a player and growing as part of their team. I am very impressed with Wigan and feel that this is the right step forward for me in my life and career.
"Although I am grateful for this move I would not be in this position if it wasn't for Richard Agar believing in me and giving me my first chance in Super League. My focus for the rest of the 2014 season will be to return from injury and put my energy into the success of my current team, Wakefield Wildcats."
The Wakefield Wildcats have signed Huddersfield Giants forward Jacob Fairbank on a one-month loan deal.
Fairbank, 24, has made 20 Super League appearances in all having previously spent time on loan at London Broncos and Bradford Bulls. He has also featured for Batley Bulldogs on dual registration.
“We’ve been in a little bit of a period where we’ve picked some injuries up and we’ve got some guys who are getting back to match fitness,” said Wildcats head coach, Richard Agar.
“We felt that it will boost our ranks in the middle of the field, initially for a month. He’s got a terrific engine so we think he’ll boost our squad and cover one or two issues we’ve got with injuries and fitness.”
Fairbank is expected to go straight into the 19-man squad for Sunday’s game at Hull FC.
