Dewsbury have signed young centre Robbie Storey from Carcassonne on a deal until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, who can also play in the back-row, came through Castleford’s academy and has impressed during a spell in the French Elite Championship whilst playing for Carcassonne, making 17 appearances for the Canaries.

Storey said: “When I knew I was coming home from France, Lee [Greenwood] contacted me and really sold the club to me.

“Looking at the squad and the experience they have, especially in the halves, I believe it will be the perfect opportunity for me to develop my game further.

“I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and doing my best for the team.”

Dewsbury coach Lee Greenwood said: “I looked at Robbie at the end of the last season, but he made a great decision to go and play in France, and he’s been a starting player in a Carcassonne team that finished top of the league.

“He’s strong and athletic and is a good addition for us.

“We are light on bodies at the moment, particularly in the positions that Robbie covers, so the timing has worked out well.”
