Wakefield rugby union club yesterday denied that their former England Under-21 flanker Jonathan Griffiths has switched codes to join t Paris St-Germain of the Super League.

The 24-year-old has attracted attention from several top sides, but Wakefield's secretary, Jim Coulson, denied there had been any contact with the French club.

"Jonathan Griffiths is contracted to play for Wakefield Rugby Union Football Club and I must stress that we have had no contact with Paris St- Germain over the player," said Coulson.

Reports had suggested that Griffiths had decided to follow the ex-London Broncos Australian second row, Justin Bryant, as the French club's second major signing of the week.
