Halifax sign Broughton for 2020

Posted by

Halifax have confirmed the signing of winger Jodie Broughton from Catalans Dragons ahead of the 2020 season.

Broughton had been on loan at Toulouse earlier this year.

The 31 year old brings a wealth of experience, with an 11 year career at the top level.

He has played for Hull FC, Salford Red Devils, Huddersfield Giants and the Dragons.

Fax coach Simon Grix said: “He definitely brings Super League experience.

“He’s played a lot of games and been very consistent in his time, he’s a big unit that brings pace at the same time and that’ll be a valuable asset to us.

“I’m looking forward to him joining and getting him down, he’s hungry to get back out there after having an unlucky injury but Jodie is keen to make up for that lost time and make an impact for us.”

Broughton added: “I was really impressed with the ambition of the club.

“They’re trying to build something special and after watching things like the Challenge Cup semi-final, I knew I wanted to be a part of that.

“I get along really well with some of the guys there already, so fitting in shouldn’t be a problem, I’m looking forward to helping this team push for a top five finish in 2020.”
