Batley Bulldogs have signed centre Lewis Galbraith from Rochdale Hornets for the 2018 season.
Galbraith joined Rochdale in 2016 after spending two years playing for Sarina Crocodiles in Australia. He played 43 games for the Hornets, scoring 16 tries.
The 23-year-old caught the eye of a number of clubs during his time at Rochdale, but he has chosen Championship outfit Batley for this season.
He admitted that he is excited for this season at the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium.
Galbraith said: “I’m really looking forward to the next chapter of my career and testing myself and developing here at Batley.
“I’ve had a great welcome and can’t wait to get going.”
And Bulldogs head coach Matt Diskin thinks Galbraith can add a lot to this side this year.
He said: “Lewis is an exciting young player who will fit superbly. He’s an outstanding athlete with great ability and a great addition to the squad.”
