Adam Walne joins Huddersfield

Huddersfield Giants have made Salford Red Devils forward Adam Walne their first signing for 2018.

The 26-year-old prop, who was released along with his younger brother Jordan by the Red Devils this week, has signed a three-year deal with the Giants.

He will replace former New Zealand international Sam Rapira, who is joining Toulouse.

Huddersfield coach Rick Stone said: "We're really excited to have signed Adam Walne. He's a really tough, uncompromising forward who is going to add a lot to us.

"Obviously we've lost Sam Rapira but we think Adam is going to be a really good replacement and a great fit for us.

"He's relatively young, he's mobile and he's a tough competitor that will add plenty to our team."
