Wakefield Trinity have signed Samoa stand-off Mason Lino from National Rugby League side Newcastle Knights on a three-year deal.
Lino, 26, was the understudy to New Zealand playmaker Shaun Johnson at the Auckland-based Warriors before joining Australian club Newcastle in 2018.
He has five tries from 34 games in the NRL, and replaces Bradford-bound Danny Brough in coach Chris Chester’s squad.
“It felt like it was a really good move for me to come over,” Lino said.
“Hopefully I can make a big contribution to the team. I hope I can provide some consistent and good performances in 2021 and beyond.
“I’ve learnt plenty in the NRL, from players I’ve played with and people I’ve worked with, so hopefully I can use that to my advantage and help the team.”
