Featherstone have signed Scotland international Dale Ferguson on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old was released by Huddersfield last season and joins Rovers on a free transfer. He has made more than 200 career appearances for Wakefield, Hull KR, Bradford and Huddersfield.

Ferguson made his international debut for Scotland in 2010 and has since earned 13 caps for the Bravehearts.

He said: “As a young lad I supported the club and last season I got a taste of what it is like to play here on a month’s loan and I can’t wait to get the chance to play here permanently now.

“The boys last year did really well. I kept tabs on them all year, especially after the month I’d spent here on loan.

“I felt they were really unlucky in the Grand Final over in Toronto but that’s been set now as a benchmark and with the team that the club have built, we’re looking to push on and hopefully get promoted.

“For me 2020 is about getting some game time and consistency after a rough old time in 2019 dealing with injuries. After that then it’ll be about helping this team achieve all of its goals both on and off the field.”
