Halifax have signed prop Gadwin Springer from Toronto Wolfpack on a one-year deal.
The 27-year-old has made 79 appearances for Catalans, Castleford and Toronto. He has earned five caps for France.
Halifax coach Simon Grix said: “Gadwin brings us the point of difference we have been looking for.
“I spoke to Gadwin a while back to sort of register our interest should Toronto not work out, then obviously reaffirmed our interest after the announcement and here we are.
“He is a big unit who dents the line, with a good offload on him too. He will be a player that will excite and get us on the front foot.
“I am looking forward to seeing him do some damage in blue and white.”
Springer said: “I’m really looking forward to starting the pre season with the boys and meet everyone.
“It’s been a crazy year for all of us, but I can’t wait for a new chapter. Halifax have always been a tough team to play against, they all work hard for each other so I’m excited to be part of this team.”
