Parramatta's Poore off to Wakefield

Justin Poore

Two-year deal with Wakefield

Australian prop Justin Poore completed a shock move from Parramatta Eels to Super League club Wakefield Wildcats on Friday.

Former New South Wales forward Poore agreed a two-year contract with Wakefield and will link up with his new team in time for the start of the 2013 season.

The 27-year-old made 178 appearances in the NRL, initially with St George Illawarra, and appeared in all three games of the 2009 Origin series for the Blues.

"This is a major signing for us and shows our fans that we are in the market for some top-quality players," Wakefield chief executive James Elston said.
