Nick Scruton has signed a new two-year deal to remain with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats until the end of 2016.

The 29-year-old prop signed from Bradford Bulls in March on a one-year deal and has agreed to extend his stay after 16 Super League outingss.

Scruton has 189 Super League appearances to his name after spells with the Bulls and Leeds Rhinos, where he was a Grand Final and World Club Challenge winner.

Scruton said: “I’m really happy. From the moment I got here I knew it was a club that I wanted to spend the next couple of years at as long as everything was going well on the field and everything has.

“I’m chuffed to bits to have another two years and hopefully we can move forward as a team and start being considered play-off candidates instead of relegation battlers.

“The top eight over the next couple of years is a big incentive, it’s where everyone wants to be. With the players we’ve got and this run we’ve been on it’s completely within our grasp and it’s something that everyone is working towards.”
