Brett Delaney joins Featherstone

Ex-Leeds star Brett Delaney has joined Featherstone on a two-year deal.

Rovers have fought off stiff competition to sign the Australian, who won four Super League Grand Finals, two Challenge Cups and a World Club Challenge during his time with the Rhinos.

Delaney, 33, isn’t a completely a new face to the club, with him having made a solitary appearance on dual-registration from Leeds last year.

On joining Featherstone, Delaney said: “I’m very excited to start a new chapter with Featherstone for the next two years.

“I know I still have a lot to give, both on and off the pitch as a player.

“Right now, I just can’t wait to meet everyone at the club and start to knuckle down with pre-season training.

“I’m really looking forward to being with the boys and the coaching staff.”

Delaney will join Papua New Guinea trio Ase Boas, Watson Boas and Thompson Teteh as one of Featherstone’s overseas players for 2019.
