The 18-year-old, who had a spell in Leeds Rhinos’ youth system before joining Trinity, made his debut for Wakefield’s first team in their Super-8s defeat at Wigan Warriors in August, and scored his first try the following week against Warrington Wolves.

“I am happy to extend my contract at Wakefield,” said Mazive.

“I have a big year ahead to improve as a player and to impress the coaching staff as I’d love to stay for years to come.”
