Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have signed Australian prop Jarrad Hickey.

The 6ft 5ins tall forward signed a two year contract with the Cats this morning - subject to UK Border Agency Approval and a successful Visa application.

Hickey joins the Wildcats after an eight year spell at NRL club Canterbury Bulldogs.

Wildcats head coach John Kear said: “We are delighted to welcome Jarrad to the club. I think it was acknowledged that at the start of the season we were light on the forward pack, but with the recent addition of both Liam Higgins and Jarrad, I feel our forward pack is certainly a force to be reckoned with.”
