Featherstone sign Dane Chisholm on loan

Featherstone have signed half-back Dane Chisholm on a season-long loan from Bradford.

The former France international has made three appearances for the Bulls in 2019, the last of which coming in February’s clash with York City Knights.

Chisholm recently returned from a knee injury in reserves action against Keighley Cougars and will link up with the Rovers with immediate effect.

Featherstone coach Ryan Carr said: ”We’re really happy that Dane has agreed to come over.

“I played with Dane back in Australia and I’ve known him for a long while now.

“I think he’s going to bring a lot to our team and add some things that we’ve probably been missing over the first part of the season.

“We’ve gone out and we’ve targeted him, because his assets match up to the areas we need.”

Chisholm commented: “I can’t wait to get playing.

“It’s already a team with a strong squad, so hopefully I can just add a bit of structure and experience.

“I’ve already spoken to Ryan (Carr) and Cameron King and it’s all been really positive.

“Kingy’s playing great and does a good job with the forwards and I should be able to come in and help us end sets.”
