Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have made their first signing ahead of the 2014 Super League season following the acquisition of prop Daniel Smith on a two-year deal.

The 20-year-old spent the last year in Australia, making 24 appearances for South Sydney Rabbitohs Under-20s having previously been a member of the Leeds Rhinos Academy.

Smith, a Lock Lane amateur and Castleford High School student, is relishing the chance to prove himself at Super League level.

"I'm really excited. It's a big opportunity for me and I'm going to grab it with both hands," he told the club's official website.

Opportunity

"I spoke to Richard (Agar) and he said there would be a big opportunity here and that's what I want.

"Australia was the best experience of my life. It's changed me massively on and off the field.

"Mostly off the field and I've turned into a man, as they say. Australia's a great country and I loved it out there.

"I'm really looking forward to ripping in and getting a Wakefield jersey on. I'm just looking to try and establish myself over here and do my best for Wakefield."
