Halifax Panthers have announced the signing of Wakefield Trinity forward Adam Tangata, who joins the club until at least the end of 2022.
The 30 year-old Cook Island international prop rejoins Fax after previously enjoying two successful spells with the club after originally joining back in 2015 and helped the club to three, top four finishes and a place in the super 8’s as well as helping the club reach the semi finals of the Challenge Cup back in 2019.
Tangata has also represented Widnes Vikings where he made an impressive start in 2019 before financial troubles hit the club resulting in Adam moving on and has recently made 12 appearances for Super League side Wakefield Trinity.
Panthers Head Coach Simon Grix said: “He left on both occasions for something we couldn’t offer and I feel he is definitely coming back an improved player from those experiences.
“It is important to note that out of the half dozen clubs that were in for Adam we sat firmly at the bottom in terms of financial benefit, therefore his heart has certainly ruled his head in one sense, with strong desire to wear our colours again. I am excited to see him renew some old combinations but also create some new with the current crop.”
Tangata added: “I’m buzzing to be back at the club and can’t wait to get ripped in with the boys, it’s an exciting time on and off the field at the Panthers and I am looking forward to being a part of it.”
