Australian signings Sam Irwin and Ryan Verlinden are set to arrive at Featherstone later this month.

Irwin, a 21-year-old half-back or hooker, and prop Verlinden have both signed two-year contracts.

“We are in the process of getting the flights organised and hopefully they will be here in the next couple of weeks before the end of November,” said Rovers coach Andy Hay.

“Irwin has just finished an electrician’s course in Australia and Verlinden has just taken his final exams for his teaching degree so we’ve been waiting for that as well. We didn’t want to cut their studies short.”

Rovers are set to announce more new signings shortly.

“We are down the track with a couple of things and hopefully we will make some announcements early next week,” added Hay.
