Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have signed Ireland international half-back Liam Finn from West Yorkshire rivals Castleford Tigers on a two-year deal.

Finn, 31, has been a regular alongside England call-up Luke Gale and Samoa playmaker Ben Roberts in his two full seasons for the Tigers.

He made two Super League outings during a 2004 Wildcats stint, and also played for Halifax, Featherstone and Dewsbury.

"I want to put a few wrongs right from last time," Finn told the club website.external-link

The switch will see him playing under of ex-Sydney Roosters and Hull FC boss Brian Smith, who helped secure Trinity's top flight status with victory against Bradford in the Million Pound Game.

"I'm looking forward to working with an experienced coach like Brian, it will be interesting to see what he does differently to other coaches," Finn added.

"I'm hoping that my role as half-back will add some organisation and control into the side and will hopefully get the best out of the team moving forward."
