Southern severs ties with Wildcats
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats’ former captain Steve Southern has cut short his stay in Super League.
The 30-year-old forward joined the Wildcats on a three-year-deal from Newcastle Knights ahead of the 2012 season but made only 15 appearances due to injury.
Southern, who relinquished the captaincy in mid-season, returned to Australia at the end of the campaign and has agreed a termination of his contract with the club.
Wakefield coach Richard Agar said: “Steve had two years left to run but things didn’t quite work out for him for one reason or another and he’s gone back to Australia.
“All parties were in complete agreement that this was the right thing to do and we wish Steve all the best.”
