Fev land Ferres from Leeds

Featherstone have secured the signing of Brett Ferres from Leeds.

Ferres made more than 300 appearances in Super League since making his debut with Bradford in 2005.
The 33-year-old featured for England in the 2013 World Cup.

Ferres said: “I’m really excited to be linking up with the Rovers. Speaking with James Webster about where the club are heading got me really excited to join the club.
“I’ve watched the club for the last couple of seasons with the dual registration they have with Leeds I’ve enjoyed coming down to watch a lot of the younger lads that have gotten the chance to play for Featherstone.”
Football Manager Steve Gill said: “We’re pleased to bring Brett into the fold here at the Rovers, James Webster was keen to make the signing happen after losing Brad Day with an ACL that will keep him out until possibly July if not longer.

“It was important we got in a quality replacement for him, as we prepare for the 2020 season. Brett brings with him a huge amount of big game experience and leadership qualities which will be invaluable over the season.”
