The 26-year-old forward joined from NRL side Cronulla sharks and has featured in 12 games for the Wildcats this season, bagging two tries in the Challenge Cup clash against Sheffield Eagles.

I am very happy, it is good to know that I am secure here for another year and hopefully for a second year too. It was the right decision for me and my family and we are really happy here at the moment, I am now just looking forward to the rest of the season and the next.

I’m enjoying my time playing under Chris Chester, he has brought a lot of structure and confidence to the team and I think this is what we needed. Earlier on in the season when we were not doing so well I knew there was only a matter of time before we started to bring some wins together and a lot of credit goes to Chezzy for doing this.
