Former Wigan Warriors & Warrington Wolves youngster joins Championship side

Sammy Kibula has played for some of the biggest clubs in British rugby league.

Born in the Republic of Congo, he made his first Super League appearance against Huddersfield Giants in 2018 for Wigan Warriors.

During his time with the Warriors he had loan spells at Swinton Lions, London Skolars and Dewsbury Rams.

He impressed at Dewsbury in 2019 with two tries in 12 appearances whilst at Swinton in the same year it was 11 appearances scoring two tries.

In 2020, he made the move to Warrington where he made a pair of appearances prior to a loan move to Newcastle Thunder ahead of 2021.

At the end of 2021, he would move once again joining Bradford Bulls where he made 13 appearances in 2022.

He has now moved yet again joining former Bulls teammate and Wales captain Elliot Kear at Batley Bulldogs as the prop looks to help Batley build on their Grand Final appearance last year.

The club have tied down key player Ben White and have Keegan Hirst coming out of retirement for 2023.

Meanwhile, they have lost star player Luke Hooley to Leeds Rhinos and Tom Gilmore to the Widnes Vikings.

They have crucially kept coach Craig Lingard however after he was linked with the Wakefield Trinity job following Willie Poching’s departure.

Lingard has helped Batley improve year on year on a shoe string budget and has brought Kibula to help the club build again.
