Featherstone sign Italy prop Alec Susino

Featherstone have signed Italy international prop Alec Susino from Barrow.

Susino, 24, has spent the past two seasons in Cumbria, making 51 appearances.

He said: “I’m excited and nervous about joining the Rovers but I’m looking forward to it.

“It will be a new challenge over to Yorkshire though, so it’ll be good. It’s been good playing for Barrow, it gave a me chance to get used to the Championship. It’s a bit more physical over here.

“The fans are very passionate and nobody as an away player likes coming here because of how passionate these fans are and they certainly let you know about it. I’m looking forward to being on the good end of that.”
