Halifax have completed the signing of hooker Keal Carlile from Newcastle Thunder for the 2020 season.
Carlile is an experienced player at all levels of the game. He started out at Hull KR before further spells at Featherstone Rovers and Sheffield Eagles before moving to the North East with Newcastle.
The 29-year-old told the club website: “I’m delighted to have signed for Fax, it’s all come about so quickly but as soon as I spoke to Simon, I believed in his plans and how the club is looking to moving forward. There seems to be a definite buzz around the place and I can’t wait to get started now and have a big 2020.”
Head Coach Simon Grix added:”Keal is an experienced 9 with the ability to bring players onto the ball and generate speed at the play the ball. He is obviously coming here primarily to compete for a spot in the team every week. Second to that and no less important, I have no doubt he can bring on the nous of both Brandon (Moore) and Curt (Davies) as they continue to develop. Between them we hope to have healthy competition.”
