Castleford Tigers forward Sam Hall makes short-term move

London Broncos have confirmed the loan signings of Super League prop Sam Hall and former player Sam Davis ahead of Sunday’s Betfred Championship visit to Dewsbury.

Castleford Tigers’ Hall has signed a one-month agreement while Davis joins from York City Knights for the remainder of the season after learning his trade via the Broncos’ academy pathway.

Both players are available for selection on Sunday when the Broncos travel to west Yorkshire to play Dewsbury Rams in the Betfred Championship.

Interim Head Coach Mike Eccles said both Hall and Davis boast outstanding potential and will play important roles during their respective loan periods.

“Sam (Hall) is a big unit and a true ball-playing middle who has fantastic ability as both a carrier and being able to shift possession around the field,” said Eccles. “We’re really excited about his potential and it’s great to have him onboard for the next month.

“We’re also thrilled to have secured Sam (Davis) on loan for the remainder of the season. Personally, I view Sam as a perfect example of the type of player we continually aspire to produce at London Broncos.

“He progressed through our academy system and has applied his knowledge and understanding from those experiences to adapt to first-team Rugby League. I’m pleased to have him back in the squad again.

“We’d like to thank Castleford and York for use of both players and we look forward to working with them.”

The Broncos would also like to confirm prop Will Blakemore has left the club after requesting a release. Blakemore made his Broncos debut in 2020 after graduating from our academy system and leaves the club with our very best wishes.

Eccles added: “We’re said to see Will leave the Broncos and on behalf of everyone at the club I would like to thank him for his services both as an academy player and for the first team. Will is a good and honest player, and we wish him every success for the future.”
