Former Huddersfield Giants forward finds new club for 2023

It’s been a busy day for York City Knights.

The club, who may fancy their chances at having a crack at Super League in the coming years after IMG proposed that licensing be re-introduced into the sport which could benefit the developing York City Knights.

Now they have made another statement signing after bringing in the likes of Pauli Pauli in 2022.

It’s been a big day for the Knights who confirmed Jack Teanby would be staying at the club beyond this year after impressing since swapping Dewsbury for the Knights.

Now they have acquired the services of former Huddersfield forward Ukuma Ta’ai.

The big unit came to Super League in 2012 from the New Zealand Warriors joining the Giants and helping them to a first ever League Leaders’ Shield in 2013.

He stayed at the club until 2020 making nearly 200 appearances before joining Newcastle Thunder in 2021 who have struggled to fulfil their potential over the last few years returning to part-time status this year.

Now Ta’ai is set to end his career at York with his 15th and 16th seasons set to take place under James Ford over the next two years as he takes on a two-year deal with the club.

On signing Ta’ai, Ford said: “We’re delighted to sign him and the physicality he brings. He has caused us problems every time we’ve played against him.”
