Douglas makes Halifax loan move

Halifax have signed Castleford prop Brandon Douglas on a season-long loan.

Douglas, 20, joins Will Maher in moving to The Shay as part of the two clubs’ dual-registration partnership.

He said: “It will be good to go back to Halifax, I really enjoyed my time there last season. Getting regular game time is what I’m hoping for, and getting the opportunity to develop my game under two fantastic coaches in Daryl and Richard will certainly improve me as a player.

“I’ll still be very much involved here at the Tigers and a combination of training here at Cas and at Halifax will be great for my development.”

Douglas made his Super League debut back in 2016 against St Helens, and signed a two-year deal.

He spent time on loan at both Dewsbury and Halifax last season.

Halifax coach Richard Marshall said: “Brandon enjoyed his short stint with us last year and performed well for us with a couple of injuries at an important time of our season. I spoke to Daryl (Powell) about Brandon’s development and a further opportunity to join us again for 2018.

“With others interested, we felt it was best to get Brandon over to The Shay again – especially after the unfortunate knee injury sustained by Harry Kidd.

“Like everybody else in the squad, Brandon will have to work hard and play extremely well to keep his place in our team next season and we look forward to working with him again in 2018.”
