Wakefield confirm Kopczak capture

Wakefield Trinity have confirmed the signing of Craig Kocpzak on a one-year deal.

The former Wales captain has finally completed his move to the West Yorkshire club from Salford after several months of speculation.

It’s understood Wakefield have paid an undisclosed fee to sign the 31-year-old.

“I am excited and looking forward to a new challenge ahead,” he said.

“I can’t wait to be playing with a fantastic team. It is great to be back in Yorkshire and I am really looking forward to getting stuck in, meeting the lads and getting out there playing.”

Head Coach Chris Chester added: “I am a big admirer of Craig and have been for a number of years. We have been chasing him for a very long time and finally the paperwork is all signed and sealed. I am delighted he has joined us for at least 12 months.”
