Fev sign French half-back

Featherstone have strengthened their creative options for next season with the addition of a French international half-back.

Louis Jouffret makes the switch to Post Office Road after spending the last two years with Batley.

Jouffret said: “I’m really happy to sign here, Featherstone are a really good club in the Championship and I’ve always thought they are a tough team to play against so I’m excited to be playing for the team in 2020.

“I already know from coming here as an opposition player that Featherstone always get a big crowd. The fans really love Rugby League here and I can’t wait to play in front of them and show them what I am like as a player.”

He added: “I would say that I’m going to bring that French flair to the team. I am looking forward to playing with Dane Chisholm, he’s been fantastic for the Rovers this season. Hopefully we can work well together.

“I’ve seen that he has played twice for France, I don’t know if he can speak too much French so I might have to test him out on that.”
