Manly second rower set for immediate switch


//

MANLY back-rower Kelepi Tanginoa has signed with English club Wakefield and will fly out to join the Wildcats this week.

The hard-running 25-year-old has been in the Sea Eagles’ 21-man squad for much of this season but only played three games in the opening nine rounds.

The Sea Eagles gave him permission to negotiate with rival clubs recently and at one stage he even thought of trying his luck in the NFL like former NRL stars Jarryd Hayne and Valentine Holmes.

But several Super League clubs showed interest in his services and he came to terms with the Wildcats in recent days.

A Parramatta junior, Tanginoa made his debut for the Eels in 2013.

He has since had stints at the Cowboys and Manly without ever cementing a top grade spot.

But his size and speed should see him become a formidable force in England.
