Wakefield Trinity have announced the death of Adam Watene. The prop forward, 32, collapsed during a weight training session earlier today.
"The Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are sad to announce the sudden passing of Adam Watene, 32," said the club in a statement. "The circumstances surrounding Adam's death were sudden and unexpected. Everyone at the Wildcats' thoughts are with Adam's family, and we ask for their privacy to be respected at this difficult time."
The Cook Islander, who also enjoyed spells with Castleford and Bradford, played 10 matches for the Wildcats this season, scoring two tries. His death comes six months after that of his father in New Zealand.
