Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have signed utility back Richard Owen on a three-year deal.

The 25-year-old made 12 appearances for the Wildcats last season after joining on loan from rivals Castleford Tigers in May.

"It's a good club to be at, I enjoyed my time here last season and think it's a great opportunity for me to set my position here," he said.

"All the boys are going to want to get stuck in and have a big season."

Owen is the second player to commit to the Wildcats in the last week after full-back Max Jowitt, 17, signed a new four-year deal on Friday.

The son of former Wakefield player Ian Jowitt, he made his Super League debut against St Helens in August.
