THE signings just keep on coming for the North Wales Crusaders.

Joining the ranks of the Colwyn Bay-based outfit for 2024 is Dan Coates, moving from League 1 rivals Midlands Hurricanes.

Coates, a 24-year-old half-back, has previously had stints with Coventry Bears, Newcastle Thunder, London Broncos and Whitehaven, where he was on loan.

Coates told the club’s website: “When the message came from Darren (Morson) I jumped at the chance to join North Wales Crusaders. This is a great opportunity for myself to be involved in a team that is on the up.

“I’m looking forward to getting back fit and hopefully helping the team to reach another level. I’m looking forward to working with Carl (Forster), from playing against him I know he likes to move the ball and has a good rugby brain.”
