Halifax have announced the signing of Gadwin Springer who joins the club from Toronto Wolfpack on a one-year deal.
The French international is a powerful presence on-field and is renowned for never taking a backwards step once the whistle is blown.
The towering prop has played on both the world stage and has invaluable Super League experience with Catalans Dragons, Castleford Tigers and most recently the Wolfpack and is sure to become a fans favourite both on and off the field.
Head 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 added: “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.”
