Featherstone have snapped up young centre Ben Hellewell from Warrington on a two-year deal.
Hellewell, 20, has spent time on loan with York this season, scoring one try in seven games, but failed to make a first team appearance for the Wolves.
Rovers Head Coach Daryl Powell said: "Ben is an exciting young talent, physically he is has the right attributes, he is tall, rangy and athletic. He is a player with Super League qualities and ability. He hasn't played there yet, but he certainly will do in the future and hopefully that will be with Featherstone Rovers."
Hellwell is a Scotland international, and originally came through the ranks at Bradford.
He added: "I'm really looking forward to joining Featherstone Rovers for the next two years. Rovers are a highly ambitious club who are making great strides both on and off the field, so this was an easy decision to make. Daryl Powell is a fantastic coach and I think under Daryl and Ryan Sheridan my game will improve."
With the glass ceiling to Super League being removed from next season, the path to the top flight opens up for Cumbria once again.
The Super League play-offs in their current form may attract some criticism, but they are keeping the season alive for several clubs in the bottom half.
The bonus point system, that has been in place in the Championships for the past eight seasons, is on the agenda for possible inclusion in Super League next year.
London Broncos have confirmed that Alex Walker has signed a full-time deal with the club.
