“He’s a big strong, ambitious young man with some maturity and is probably in his prime for a prop."

Smith added: “Tom feels he’s ready for the full-time environment and wants to throw everything into becoming a full-time player and fulfilling his ambitions.

“He’s the right mould of what we’re looking for, to give us more depth and more go forward.

“I can’t see any reason why he won’t be a success at Super League level.

"We’ve identified that in his ability but also in his ambition and his drive.

“I’m really excited about the addition and what Tom’s going to bring to us.”
