Bussey commits to Rovers

Featherstone Rovers Jack Bussey has agreed a new two year contract that will keep him the club until at least the end of the 2014 season.

The young upcoming half back has impressed in the Under 23 and Rugby League 9’s competitions this season, and could soon be knocking on the door for a first team spot.

On signing the new deal, Jack said, “Featherstone is a great club and everyone at the club is great to be around. I believe there is something special happening at Rovers and I’m hungry to be part of it and excited about the future.

Rovers Head Coach Daryl Powell only expressed delight and praise for the youngster.

He said, “I am really pleased that Jack has agreed to stay at Featherstone for next two years. We have fought off Super League opposition last year to retain Jack and are delighted to do so again. 

“We have high hopes for Jack as a developing half back who is learning from consistent quality performers like Liam Finn and Andy Kain. Jack is quick and strong and I expect him to push hard for a first team place next season.”

Bussey will be itching to be part of Featherstone’s top of the table clash against league leaders Leigh Centurions at the Leigh Sports Village on Friday.
