Halifax have announced the signing of forward Adam Tangata from Super League outfit Wakefield until the end of the 2022 season.
Tangata returns to The Shay following two successful spells with the club after originally joining back in 2015, helping the club to three top-four finishes and a place in the Super 8s, as well as featuring in the side that reached the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup back in 2019.
Head coach Simon Grix said: “This has had the potential to happen since he left I suppose. Halifax is home to Adam and, in his five or six years in the UK, this is the place he has played his best and been truly happy.
“He left on both occasions for something we couldn’t offer and I feel he is definitely coming back an improved player from those experiences.
“It is important to note that out of the half dozen clubs that were in for Adam we sat firmly at the bottom in terms of financial benefit, therefore his heart has certainly ruled his head in one sense, with strong desire to wear our colours again. I am excited to see him renew some old combinations but also create some new with the new crop.”
Tangata added: “I’m buzzing to be back at the club and can’t wait to get ripped in with the boys, it’s an exciting time on and off the field at the Panthers and I am looking forward to being a part of it.”
