Wildcats sign up Aussie duo
Ben Jeffries in action for West Tigers
Jeffries scored five tries in 18 games for Wests
Wakefield have snapped up NRL Grand Final winner Clinton O'Brien and former Australian Under-18 international Ben Jeffries.

Front rower O'Brien, 28, helped Newcastle Knights to glory in 2001 and is a former Queensland representative.

Jeffries, 22, scored five tries in 18 games for Wests Tigers but has turned down a new contract offer to move to Super League.

The Wildcats, who have re-signed Ian Knott and David Wrench, have also boosted their squad with the addition of Featherstone centre Richard Newlove.

Wakefield have narrowly avoided relegation for the past two seasons and are determined not to struggle again in 2003.

They have already signed giant prop Dallas Hood from Grand Final winners Sydney Roosters and still have room for one more overseas player.
