Smith played a significant role in a five-game unbeaten run at the start of James Webster’s tenure that steered Trinity to Super League safety.

The 29-year old former Wigan and Parramatta Eels half-back made 89 Super League appearances in all and was the Wildcats Player of the Year during his first season in with the club in 2012.

Chris Riley, Lopini Paea, Mickael Simon, Matty Ashurst and Craig Hall will also join Smith as new additions to the squad for Webster’s first full season in charge.

“It was an easy decision. I think people can see I’m happy at Wakefield and enjoy everything about the club.

The players are a great bunch to play with and the coaching staff are easy to get along with.

If we keep our squad fit we’ve as much chance as anyone else to make the top eight. It will be tough but we go into the year full of optimism.”
