2024 Signing! – COLE OAKLEY

14 October 2023

Big middle Cole Oakley joins the Lions!

We are delighted to reveal that our first brand new recruitment ahead of the 2024 season is Cole Oakley!

Cole, who will turn 23 years old later this month, has been at Halifax Panthers since 2021. He previously came through the ranks at Warrington and made his Super League debut with the Wolves as a youngster back in 2020.

Whilst on the fringes of the Halifax first team he has spent loan periods at Newcastle Thunder, Hunslet and Keighley, and most recently at North Wales Crusaders who he helped inspire to the recent League 1 play-off final.

Cole is a powerful 6 foot tall middle, and will certainly add strength to the Lions’ pack in 2024.

Head Coach Alan Kilshaw said, “Cole has been in very good systems at Warrington Wolves and Halifax and has really kicked on with loan spells at Keighley and Crusaders this season. He is powerful and athletic, and a player who is dedicated to being the best he can possibly be. We are really pleased he will be a Lion in 2024!”
