“I’m really excited to be joining Wakefield.” says Tanginoa.
“There are a few boys that I know already such as Tinirau Arona, Jacob Miller and David Fifita. I met the rest of the boys this morning and they seem a really good bunch. I’m looking forward to us all working together.
“I’m just trying to stay ready (if called upon this weekend). Hopefully I get the opportunity to play alongside the boys and if I get the chance I won’t hold back. I’m feeling pretty keen!”
Head Coach Chris Chester added:
“I’m over the moon we’ve got Kelepi tied down for the next two and a half years. He’s a player I’ve been trying to sign for the last few years, so to have him on board now is great for us!
“At this stage of the season, he will give the pack a big boost and help us go forward. He’s straight into training this morning and looking sharp, so I’m looking forward to seeing him out there on the field.”
