Walker made eight appearances after joining the Wildcats from St Helens in June and is delighted to extend his stay at least until the end of 2017.

"I really enjoyed my time, especially working under Brian Smith who is an excellent coach. I'm looking forward to coming back in pre-season and work extremely hard."

Smith said: "We will see a slightly different Anthony Walker in 2016. His tremendous footwork in attack will be enhanced from his tough workouts in his personal programme throughout the off-season. He is one of many contenders for a spot in our forward pack."
