Halifax Panthers sign Joe Keyes

Halifax Panthers have announced the signing of halfback Joe Keyes, who joins the club on a two-year deal from Hull Kingston Rovers.

The 26-year-old Ireland international recently starred in a tryscoring performance for the Robins at the 2021 Magic Weekend, and has a wealth of Championship experience with London Broncos, York City Knights and Bradford Bulls. However, Keyes' time in East Yorkshire came to an end last month, prompting Simon Grix to make his move.

"I'm really happy to have signed," said Keyes.

"I'm looking forward to linking up with the lads there and hopefully adding something to a very strong group."

Head Coach Simon Grix added: "Joe is a quality player with a well-rounded skill set, which he has displayed at Championship level in previous years, as well as this season in a short stint with Bradford.

"Opportunities have been limited at Hull KR despite going well when called upon, so Joe has taken control of his own destiny and decided it is time to move on. We couldn't be happier to welcome him to The Shay and look forward to him complementing our group."
