Wakefield move in for Catic

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have announced the signing of Australian utility man Ned Catic.

The 27-year-old has moved to the Super League club from Sydney Roosters after signing a two-year contract.

Catic, who can play prop or second row, takes Wakefield's last overseas quota place alongside half-backs Ben Jeffries and Sam Obst.

"We are delighted to have signed a player of Ned's experience and quality," said coach Tony Smith.

"He is exactly the sort of player we have been looking for to complete the picture for 2006.

"He is a tough, robust prop who can play 80 minutes, and has been in two NRL Grand Finals so brings bags of experience with him."
