Featherstone have signed prop Darcy Lussick on a two-week loan deal from Salford.

The 32-year-old has made 165 career appearances for Manly Sea Eagles, Parramatta Eels, Manly Sea Eagles, Toronto Wolfpack and Salford.

Featherstone coach James Webster said: “Darcy will bring some added depth to an area where we are currently a bit thin.

“With (James) Harrison, (Jack) Bussey, (Brett) Ferres, and (Dale) Ferguson all unavailable as well as Luke Cooper just coming back from injury, it’s added a lot of extra pressure on our other middles.

“Obviously Darcy has played at a high level in both the NRL and Super League and we look forward to him joining us for the next two weeks.”

Lussick said: “I’m really excited to be joining such a strong club and contributing as best as I can. I can’t wait to get out there and play my first game for the Rovers.”

Lussick linked up with the Red Devils ahead of this season and has played four games for the club to date.
