Australian prop Jarrad Hickey has signed a two-year contract with Super League side Wakefield Wildcats.

The deal is subject to UK Border Agency Approval and a successful visa application by the club.

The 25-year-old joins the Wildcats after an eight year spell at National Rugby League side Canterbury Bulldogs.

He told the club's website: "I'm really looking forward to playing here. I would like to thank the club for giving me this great opportunity."

The Wildcats are currently in 13th place in the Super League table, just two points away from bottom side Crusaders.

Wakefield head coach John Kear said: "We are delighted to welcome Jarrad to the club.

"I think it was acknowledged that at the start of the season we were light on the forward pack, but with the recent addition of both Liam Higgins and Jarrad, I feel our forward pack is certainly a force to be reckoned with."
