Cockayne signs for Featherstone


Featherstone Rovers have swooped to sign experienced utility back Ben Cockayne after his recent release from Hull KR.

Rovers coach Daryl Powell is delighted to have signed a quality addition to the squad and is looking forward to working with Ben.

Powell stated: “Ben is a high quality player who provides great energy and speed to a rugby league team. Our outside backs needed an addition with the recent departure of Liam Welham, and Ben is the type of player to add significantly to the squad.

“Alongside this, Ben can play a number of positions so adds real versatility. Having spoken to Ben I know he is delighted to get the opportunity to complete the season by helping our great club achieve our potential.”

Featherstone CEO Simon Riley also added “I’m happy to welcome Ben to Rovers, and I’m looking forward to getting to know him. Ben was extremely keen to come to Rovers and I’m sure his arrival here will be mutually beneficial.”
