Wakefield sign Joe Westerman

Joe Westerman

Wakefield have announced the capture of Hull loose forward Joe Westerman on a two-year contract.

The 29-year-old former Warrington, Castleford and Toronto player is Trinity's first confirmed signing for 2020 and is expected to be joined by at least four other new faces.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: "To get someone of Joe Westerman's quality at the club, on a two-year deal, is great news.

"Joe was in some great form for Hull FC in 2019 and I'm delighted he'll be in the Red, White and Blue for the next two seasons.

"He'll add a different dimension to our pack next season."

Westerman, who was out of contract at Hull, said: "I'm really looking forward to it. It was a big decision and I thought Wakefield was the right club to join. I know a few of the lads here.

"I was happy with my form in 2019. I had a few little niggles at the start of the year but then I got plenty of games under my belt. For next year, I'm looking to build on that."
