Halifax secure sixth signing ahead of 2022 in the shape of former Super League forward

Halifax have continued their exciting preparations for next season with a major signing in the shape of former Super League forward Matty Gee.

the second-row began his career at Salford but very rarely appeared for the Red Devils in Super League often having to learn his trade on loan at the likes of Hunslet Hawks before moving to London in 2017 where he became a key player.

Whilst in the capital, he helped London to promotion and featured predominately in their push for Super League survival in 2019. In the end, despite a sterling effort, the Broncos sunk back to the Championship prompting him to join Hull KR.

After just one year with the club he then joined newly promoted Leigh and was a bright spark in a difficult season for the Centurions as they too suffered relegation in 2021.

Despite his move away from Leigh, he will be playing Championship rugby next season as he joins Halifax becoming their sixth new signing ahead of what should be a promising campaign for the Panthers in 2022.

Speaking about the move, Gee spoke excitedly about what the club could achieve next season: “It’s a great club with great ambition and with the squad and coaches we’ve got and signings we’ve made, there’s no reason why we can’t achieve something special this year.”

Meanwhile Head Coach spoke about how Gee could be a key player for the Panthers in 2022: “He carries well, running strong lines, challenging defences and has some whack about him in defence. He will prove to be a real asset for us.”
