Keegan Hirst has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at Wakefield until the end of 2019.
The 30-year-old made the move to Belle Vue from Championship side Batley Bulldogs before the start of last season and has gone on to play 25 times for Trinity.
"I am thrilled to get the deal over the line," said Hirst.
"After a successful season last year not only with the club but on a personal level it is nice to have a bit of security of a new deal and to be able to concentrate on this season.
"It was a huge gamble for both me and the club to make the move to Super League, but I am thoroughly enjoying playing for Wakefield.
"It is a great club with a fantastic support network. The more experience I have in a full-time environment the more it will help me improve as a player."
Hirst was involved as Wakefield beat Huddersfield 22-4 on Sunday to secure their fourth consecutive victory of the new Super League season.
"It is great to have Keegan on board until 2019," said Trinity head coach Chris Chester.
"He's a fantastic player to have in our ranks and not only does he provide excellent competition to our pack but he is also a huge character to have in the squad."
