Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have signed Taulima Tautai from NRL club Parramatta Eeels. The 25 year old 6' 3" Samoan international will arrive at the club tomorrow.

Tautai has played over 70 first grade games in the NRL for Parramatta and Cronulla Sharks after making his debut in 2008.

“I can’t wait," said Tautai, who's hoping the move will help him make the Samoan squad for the World Cup later this year. "It’s a good opportunity for a new start and I’m looking forward to it. The game is really fast paced and physical over there so I think it’ll suit my game."
