Tim Smith has committed his future to Wakefield

Wakefield's influential Australian scrum-half Tim Smith has signed a new contract that will keep him at the Wildcats until the end of 2014.

It is the second new deal the 27-year-old former Wigan player has signed in four months after initially joining the club from Cronulla on a one-year deal last November.

He agreed a one-year extension in July but Wakefield were keen to retain him for longer after he played a key role in helping them reach the Super League play-offs.

"I am really happy," Smith said. "It's all about security signing for an extra year. We had a successful season and the club is certainly going somewhere and I really am happy here.

"When you are in this game you don't want to be on one-year deals because you don't know what is around the corner so I am delighted to get it done."
