Ben Jones-Bishop agrees Wildcats switch

Wakefield Wildcats have announced the signing of Ben Jones-Bishop from Salford on a one-year deal.

The wing or full back previously spent six years with Leeds Rhinos, winning two Grand Finals, as well as a loan stint with Harlequins RL and has scored an impressive 66 tries in 106 Super League games.

The 27 year-old told the club’s website:  “I am very excited about the challenge that lies ahead at Wakefield and playing a role in helping the club build for the future.

“I am looking forward to playing alongside my teammates, but I am also looking forward to developing and improving areas of my game working under Brian Smith.”

Jones-Bishop is the latest new arrival at Belle Vue and Smith is excited by the prospect of the winger combining with Liam Finn, Jacob Miller and Anthony Tupou: “The Signing of Ben Jones-Bishop is another highlight of our preparations for progress in Super League in 2016.” Smith said.

“Young, fast and coming back home to West Yorkshire add a great feel to the qualities Ben will bring to our team.

“The try scoring and try saving potential through his speed and anticipation is an exciting prospect for all in the Wildcats army. Personally, I can’t wait to start working on the attacking combinations for Ben with players like Anthony Tupou with his offloads, Jacob Miller’s stepping breaks and the crafty passes and kicks of Liam Finn.”

“This latest addition of talent and speed continues the Wildcats growth for the huge season ahead.”
