Halifax Panthers have announced the signing of Kyle Wood for the 2022 season.

The livewire hooker joins the Panthers after playing over 250 Super League games, starring for Huddersfield Giants and Wakefield Trinity.

The Castleford-born number nine made his professional debut with Doncaster way back in 2008 and has also had spells with the likes of Sheffield and Batley.

Wood arrives at The Shay having scored 26 tries in 165 games for Wakefield across two spells at Belle Vue and joins Trinity former teammate Joe Arundel in the Panthers ranks.

“I’m delighted to join Halifax and excited about the challenge of going part time whist kickstarting my career outside of rugby,” said Wood.

“Grixy and his staff have a clear vision for the club and I can’t wait to be a part of it and help bring through the next generation of young players into the first team.”

And Panthers head coach Simon Grix was happy to have a player of Wood’s ability and wisdom in his squad for 2022.

“Kyle has had a great career at Super League level and is certainly capable of remaining at that level. Fortunately for us Kyle sees part time rugby more of an appeal for his future. He is a smart player able to manipulate the ruck and bring players onto the ball creating all important ruck speed. His knowledge of the game and experience are real assets for us as we bring in another player with leadership qualities.”
