Rugby League: Jordan Syme becomes Hornets' first 2020 signing

Date published: 13 November 2019

Rochdale Hornets have made their first signing for 2020 as Jordan Syme joins from Championship club, Halifax.

Syme ended the 2019 campaign on loan at Hornets, having also enjoyed a loan spell in 2018.

Having spent a number of years at Halifax, the utility forward developed in the successful reserve grade at the Shay before going on to feature a hand full of times in first grade.

Syme, 22, hopes his move across the Pennines will allow him valuable game time as he continues to develop.

Jordan said: “I’m excited for a new challenge and looking forward to getting started and getting regular game time with a new club.”
