Halifax have signed winger Shaun Robinson from Featherstone on a one-year deal.

Robinson, 29, scored 15 tries in 30 appearances for Rovers in 2018 and had been on Halifax’s radar for a while.

Coach Richard Marshall said: “We’ve been tracking Shaun for some time now and I’m really pleased that we have managed to sign him.

“We just missed out on him last but it’s great that we’ve been able to make him our first signing for 2019.

“He has electric pace and is a real handful out of the ruck. Playing against him, we’ve always struggled with carries and we’ve had to put some real time into stopping him on the training field to limit his threats.

“Thankfully, now we can utilise those abilities instead. He’s a great finisher of tries off as well and I am sure that he will enhance our edge defence.

“I think the Halifax fans are going to love his pace and power from the wing.”
