Halifax snap up ex-Super League utility

Halifax have confirmed the signing of experienced utility player Tommy Lee.

The 32-year-old joins the club with over 250 games of experience, having played for eight different Super League clubs since making his debut for Hull FC in 2005.

He joined Crusaders for a season after leaving the Black and Whites, before moving to West Yorkshire to play for Wakefield then Huddersfield.

He then spent 2013 in the capital with London Broncos, which was followed up by a two-year spell at Salford.

The following season he was brought in by St Helens as a back up for James Roby, making 19 appearances, before linking up with Hull KR.

In July of last season he made the decision to retire from rugby league due to persistent niggling injuries but has now chosen to come out of retirement to turn out for Simon Grix’s side.

He arrives at The Shay as a likely replacement for Keal Carlile, who was forced to retire last week due to medical reasons.
