He was unable to establish a regular spot in the Trinity side and spent the second half of last season on loan at Featherstone Rovers, helping the club reach the Championship Grand Final.

The Essex-born player was not offered a new deal by Wakefield and did not return permanently to Rovers. He did join Halifax on trail in November but a permanent switch to the Shay Stadium did not materialise.

He has now returned to London, with a club statement confirming: "We are delighted to announce the signing of former player Alex Walker until the end of the season.

"The Scotland full-back will go straight into the squad for this weekend's Challenge Cup fixture against Bradford Bulls."
