Wakefield Trinity are pleased to announce that Joe Arundel has signed a new two-year deal to keep him at the club until the end of 2021.
Arundel, 27, has been at Trinity since 2015 and has made 82 appearances, scoring 18 tries.
He started his career at local rivals Castleford, before moving to Hull FC in 2013.
At the start of 2015, Arundel made the move to Belle Vue with a view to getting regular first-team rugby. He proved a solid signing and featured heavily in the end of season run-in which ended with Trinity beating Bradford Bulls in the Million Pound Game.
The Centre is now looking to kick-on and force his way into Chris Chester’s starting team.
“I’m very pleased to sign the deal,” says Arundel.
“It gives me a bit of confidence to build on what has been an enjoyable few years at the club.
“I’m looking to push on and challenge for a spot. We all push each other. Bill and Reece are both quality players and they got their merits last year with one getting in the Dream Team and the other getting called up to the England squad. We all bring a different skillset and I’m confident in mine when I get the chance.”
Chris Chester also spoke about Arundel’s new deal and is delighted the 27-year old has increased his stay.
“I’m delighted for Joe. He’s a quality player and offers plenty to the squad. He’s got plenty of competition for a centre spot, with Bill and Reece. But when Joe does get his chance, I’m sure he’ll put his best foot forward for a place in the side.”
The FULL interview with Joe will be on Trinity TV shortly.
