Wakefield snap up Sammut

Wakefield have signed Jarrod Sammut from Bradford Bulls on a two-year contract.

Sammut - who has scored 45 tries in 70 Super League appearances for Crusaders and the Bulls - asked to be released from his contract and the club agreed, a further blow for Bradford following the loss of Garreth Carvell to Hull on Wednesday.

Wildcats chairman Michael Carter said: "We recently got into dialogue with the Bulls regarding Jarrod and we're pleased to have reached a conclusion that is mutually beneficial for all parties.

"We look forward to welcoming Jarrod to the club and all associated with the Bulls to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium next week for our home opener."

Negotiations

A spokesperson for the Bulls said: "We entered into negotiations with the Wakefield Wildcats and have come away with all parties agreeing a happy resolution.

"We would like to thank Michael Carter and his team at Wakefield for the part they played during this time, they have proven themselves to be extremely professional."

Sammut will not be available for the Wildcats first Super League game at Salford Red Devils on Sunday.
