HARVEY Hallas has re-joined Keighley Cougars on a week-by-week basis.

The popular prop re-joins Craig Lingard's side from Betfred Championship side Dewsbury Rams.

Hallas returned to Cougars on a one-month loan deal from Dewsbury earlier this season.

He is eligible to play his first game back with Cougars when they travel to Newcastle Thunder on Sunday.

The 22-year-old had signed for Keighley ahead of last season, having been part of the Wakefield Trinity academy before then.

Hallas was originally a back-rower but the young player was soon turned into a powerful prop.

He was one of a number of players who quit Cougar Park following the controversy over unpaid wages last autumn. But now Hallas is looking to play a further part in Cougars' new era in Betfred League One.

His Cougars return follows Hallas making a substitutes' appearance for Coventry Bears in their 41-30 victory over Workington Town last Saturday.
