Huddersfield Giants Women have signed former Bradford loose forward Reagan Walker.
The 20-year-old played for the Bulls in the early days of the Women’s Super League, before taking a break from the sport due to personal reasons.
She then made her return, playing for Featherstone Lionesses and Cutsyke Raidettes and was due to join the Leeds Rhinos’ squad before suffering a knee injury.
She will now link up with the Giants, who are looking to make a big impression in what is their debut season in the Women’s Super League.
Walker is the younger sister of late Wakefield academy prop Leon, who tragically passed away during a game against Celtic Crusaders in Bridgend in 2009, and says she is proud to carry on her brother’s legacy as she makes her own way in the game.
“I’m excited to get back into Super League after having some time away,” she said. “I’ve been playing for Cutsyke and Featherstone and enjoyed time with both teams, but I’m ready to get back to a higher standard of rugby.
“I wanted a change of environment and specific training to better myself. I want to make my brother proud, he was a huge part of my life and I miss him so much, so to say I’m playing at a Super League standard feels like I’m following in his footsteps and carrying on the Walker name in Rugby League.”
