HALIFAX have signed Leeds’ Halifax-born front rower Luke Ambler on a month’s loan.

The former Ovenden junior, who played under Fax boss Karl Harrison at Salford, is due to train with his new teammates tonight and is almost certain to figure in Sunday’s Northern Rail Cup clash with Featherstone.

“Luke’s a big, aggressive kid with a decent off load in his game,” said Harrison.

“We were desperate for a front rower and he fits the bill perfectly.

“The bonus is that he’s a Halifax person and he’s excited about coming to us.”
