Super League clubs reportedly ‘are looking’ at Halifax Panthers players

With the deadline passed for when players can start negotiating with other clubs, a whole host of moves have already been announced and many have been announced.

For those players who are out of contract, it can be a difficult time, particularly when they are unsure of where their future lies.

For a small section of part-time players in the Championship, however, they will have to decide whether to go full-time with a Super League side or stay part-time in the second division if a top flight club makes an offer.

The likes of Featherstone Rovers, Leigh Centurions, Halifax Panthers and York City Knights all have players that could quite easily make the step up.

And, for one Bradford Bulls reporter, Fax players are reportedly being monitored by Super League sides.

“Titus Gwaze is out of contract a number as are a number of their big players,” The Game Caller said on The Full Eighty Minutes podcast.

“I’ve spoken to my Halifax sources and it will be interesting to see what happens here.

“But the way Titus Gwaze has been playing and some others like Joe Keyes, Super League clubs are looking ultimately because of Halifax’s success.”

A number of Championship players have made the step up in recent years such as Chris Hill and Alex Walmsley and there are definitely more hidden gems out there.

Meanwhile, Featherstone and Leigh continue to spend heavily in a bid to earn promotion to Super League.

Lachlan Lam was the latest signing by the Centurions and he has arrived in the UK ready for the Summer Bash this weekend when Leigh will take on arch-rivals Featherstone once more.

Meanwhile, Rovers have brought in the likes of Gadwin Springer, Tom Lineham and Dan Fleming in a bid to bolster their squad ready for the second half of the season.
