Halifax Panthers are delighted to announce the signing of half back Joe Keyes, who joins the club on a two-year deal from Super League side Hull Kingston Rovers.

The 26 year old Ireland international recently starred for the Robins at the 2021 Super League Magic Weekend, and has plenty 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 pounce and beat a number of rival clubs to secure his signature.

“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 was delighted to have his man at last. “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.”

Joe will be proudly sponsored by Nellie & Nancie Conyers.
