Youngster Brandon Douglas has joined Halifax RLFC on loan until the end of the 2017 season.
Douglas, 19, joined the Tigers first team back in October, signing a 2 year contract,after a successful period in the Tigers U19s academy.
Game time has been limited in the first team and coach Daryl Powell believes this is a great move for the youngster: “Halifax presents Brandon with a great opportunity to further his experience in the Championship. I know Richard Marshall (Halifax head coach), and he is a quality and proven coach who will help Brandon to develop his all-round skill set.”
The loan agreement does not have a call back option.
All eyes for the Tigers now look towards this weekend’s local derby with Leeds Rhinos that will bring the curtain down on Magic Weekend 2017 at St.James Park. A monster crowd of over 3500 Tigers fans will be getting behind their team on the road.
