Featherstone Rovers have unveiled their seventh off season signing with second rower Colton Roche putting pen to paper on a two-year contract after joining from League one side York City Knights.

It will be a return to the club for Roche and he is determined to make his mark at the Big Fellas Stadium second time around.

He said “This is a fresh start for me and I’m very excited about working under Jon Sharp.

“The facilities at Rovers with the Centre of Excellence, the stadium and the passionate supporters make it a good environment for rugby league.

“I’ve been at York City Knights playing Kingstone Press League One rugby league and I’ve become more confident as a player and want to be part of helping Featherstone achieve their goals and can’t wait to get started in November.”

Rovers head coach Jon Sharp said: “Colton will bring size to our pack and is very powerful and aggressive. He’ll bring some strike to our second row and our play around the edges.

“I’m looking forward to working with Colton and I know he is excited at the prospect of playing for us.”
