Hunslet Hawks have signed 25-year-old prop Michael Haley from Featherstone Rovers.
Hawks were quick to pounce for Haley after his release from Rovers and the forward will now be in contention for a place in the squad for Sunday’s game at Swinton.
Haley, who will wear shirt number 34 at Hawks, came through the junior ranks at Leeds Rhinos before stints with Doncaster and Sheffield Eagles.
Hawks director of rugby Darren Williams said: “Michael will add some real go forward and aggression to our already impressive pack.
“He’s a proven Championship campaigner and at just 25 he still has his best years in front of him.”
