Locke who was born in Auckland started his playing career at New Zealand Warriors in 2009, finishing his first season at the club as top points scorer. After five years at the Warriors, Locke signed a three-year deal with Super League side Salford Red Devils in 2014.

I am delighted to welcome Kevin Locke to the club. Kevin showed a great desire to come and play his rugby here and get a smile back on his face. We think we can help him achieve that which will be good for him and us. I can’t wait to see him pull on the red, white and blue jersey.

– Wildcats Chairman Michael Carter

Locke will be in contention for next Wednesday’s fixture against Hull FC at Belle Vue. Tickets are still on sale for the game.
