Hirst commits to Wakefield

Prop Keegan Hirst will remain with Wakefield Trinity for the 2018 Betfred Super League season.

Hirst joined Trinity from Batley Bulldogs on a 12-month deal with an option of a further year that has now been triggered.

"I am really happy for Keegan," said Wakefield head coach Chris Chester. "It was a big step up for him to come in and play at Super League level every weekend but he has achieved that and had a great season.

"I am looking forward to working with Keegan for another year and see him grow even more as a Super League player."

The 29-year-old made 23 appearances for Wakefield in 2017 and ended his debut season on a high by scoring his first try in the dying stages of the 32-0 win over Wigan Warriors in the final game of the Super 8s.

"I am really happy to be staying with Wakefield," said Hirst. "It is a great club that's doing its best to move forward both on and off the field.

"We have a great group at the club and the fans have been fantastic.

"I really enjoyed my first season and I am looking forward to getting stuck into pre-season and kicking on for 2018."
