Chester Butler: Huddersfield to sign Halifax centre from next season

Huddersfield Giants have signed centre Chester Butler from Championship side Halifax on a three-year deal to begin next season.

The 23-year-old Wales international made his first-team debut in 2016 and has made four appearances this season.

"I've always wanted to go full-time and test my abilities, which I haven't been able to do part-time," he said.

"I can't wait to play in Super League. It's been a dream of mine and to get the opportunity to do so is amazing."
