Wakefield sign Jacob Miller on one-year deal

Wakefield Wildcats have completed the signing of Hull FC half-back Jacob Miller, with the Australian signing a one-year deal at the club.

Miller, who joined the Black and Whites in 2013, failed to hold down a place under Lee Radford in 2014, spending time out on dual-registration at Championship club Doncaster.

However, he has now made the switch from East Yorkshire to West Yorkshire, with Wildcats boss James Webster excited about the competition Miller will bring to the club’s halfback division, as well as believing Miller has a point to prove after a disappointing spell with Hull.

“Jacob’s signing allows us to have greater depth and competition in the halves,” Webster said.

“He is similar to many players that have signed for Wakefield in that he is a young player with a point to prove, and a burning desire to cement a spot in the team.

“I have not bought Jacob to fulfil the same role as he was asked to do at Hull, as we already have Tim Smith.

“I believe we have a player that has a lot of improvement in him, and I look forward to investing some time into him as a player.”
