The 22-year-old who can play back row or prop and will be available for consideration by Paul Anderson for Sunday’s game with St Helens.

Cox will wear the number 30 shirt for the Giants.

He’s a rather large human being who can play on the edge and in the middle. He will add a bit more variety to our squad and a bit of freshness. We’ve always talked about him, he’s got some good Super League experience and he’s caused us some problems every time we’ve played against him and those are the players that you like.

– Head Coach Paul Anderson

The 29-year-old front rower has made 141 Championship appearances for Halifax and his previous club Featherstone Rovers, scoring 19 tries.

He is the Eagles' seventh signing of the close season, joining Blake South, John Davies, Steve Thorpe, Jamie Langley, Ben Musolino and former Halifax team-mate Rob Worrincy.

"Games against Sheffield have always been tough battles," said Tonks.

"You can see there is a real togetherness and a real strong culture at the club, and I want to be a part of that.

“Having spoken to Mark Aston you can see he is building something here. He has made some really good signings, and the players that are already here are class acts as well.

"He is taking steps to improve the club and the squad so I’m looking forward to being involved.

“I think top four is definitely achievable. When you look at the sides that will be competing at the top end of the table, I don’t think Sheffield are far away from them at all.

"As long as all the new lads fit in well, which I’m sure we will, I think we will be right up there."

Huddersfield head coach Paul Anderson paid tribute to Faiumu after the game.

He said: "Fuey is a credit to himself and his family. He has been a great professional at this club.

"He has spent this year struggling with injuries but he made the choice to play on as we needed him. He is something special."
