Halifax RLFC can today confirm that winger Jodie Broughton has signed for Halifax for the 2020 season.
The highly experienced 31-year-old becomes Simon Grix’s second new signing ahead of the 2020 campaign, Grix is looking forward to Broughton bringing added experience into the squad;
“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.”
After 11 years in the top flight, beginning at hometown club Leeds Rhinos and featuring spells at Hull, Salford and Huddersfield before moving to Catalans three years ago, Jodie is looking forward to the new challenge;
“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.”
