Former Wakefield centre Joe Arundel has decided to go part-time with Championship club Halifax in 2022.
The 30-year-old has made more than 200 career appearances for Castleford, Hull and Wakefield. The former England Knights international left Trinity at the end of last season.
Arundel said: “I knew from the first chat with Simon (Grix, coach) the clear ambitions of the club going forward and that I wanted to be a part of that.
“We have an extremely talented group of players that can achieve success.”
Halifax coach delighted to secure services of Joe Arundel
Panthers boss Simon Grix said: “Joe has made the decision to pursue part-time rugby and we are fortunate to have acquired his services.
“He is a big body and will prove a handful on the edge in both attack and defence. He debuted early so he has been around a while, but at 30 has a while left in the game.
“His experience will prove invaluable to our younger outside backs.”
Elsewhere in the Championship: former Warrington winger pens two-year deal at Newcastle
Newcastle Thunder winger Jack Johnson has signed a new two-year contract extension at Kingston Park.
Johnson, 25, scored 12 tries in 18 appearances last season after arriving from Widnes.
He said: “Last year was good and challenging at times but we achieved what we wanted and set a platform for going forward.
“I loved being here and we started talking around a quarter into the season about extending, what it was going to look like next season, where we want to get to and it was a pretty easy decision to make on hearing that and the club’s ambition.
“What was said has been delivered and that is good. Going full-time is brilliant, it’s what the club needed and I think we can really kick on now.”
