Rinaldi returning to Quins
Former French international Julien Rinaldi will return to London in 2012 after signing a two-year contract with Harlequins RL.
The 32-year-old hooker made 48 appearances for Quins from 2007 to 2008 before leaving due to a clampdown on overseas players.
The former Catalan Dragons player returned to Engage Super League with Bradford Bulls and then moved to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, where he is nearing the end of his first full season.
Harlequins head coach Rob Powell said: “It’s great to have Julien back on board. He left the club in 2008 more due to an RFL ruling than anything else.
“He’s been exceptional for Wakefield this year and will provide strike out of dummy half with his running, passing and kicking game.”
