Halifax have signed Huddersfield’s Academy international prop Tyler Dickinson on a month’s loan.

Dickinson, who played under Fax boss Richard Marshall in last year’s 1-1 series draw against Australia, could make his debut in Saturday night’s Summer Bash derby against Bradford at Bloomfield Road (7.0).

The 19 year old, a former Siddal junior, has been a standout performer for the Giants’ Academy line up.

“Halifax are a side with top four ambitions so the pressure is on every game for them to get the vital points and Tyler will be a good addition for them,” said a Huddersfield spokesman.

“Physically he certainly has the size needed at that level in the front row and it will be a great test for him against some good players.”
