Featherstone have signed Samoa international Fa’amanu Brown for the rest of the 2020 season.
The 25-year-old, who can play half-back or hooker, has made 37 NRL appearances for Cronulla and Canterbury. He has earned five caps for Samoa.
The move has received a GBE (Governing Body Endorsement), allowing the club to apply for his visa, which officials are confident of securing.
The final matter of the signing rests on the 2020 season getting back underway, with the inclusion of promotion to Super League, which was a key factor in Brown’s ambitions to join Rovers.
Featherstone football manager Steve Gill said: “We are pleased to be able to bring a player of Nu Brown’s quality here to Featherstone.
“He can excel in a range of positions and I’m sure he will be a fan’s favourite here at Rovers.
“As a club we have never given up hope, with the squad we have, of going one step further than last year.
“If and when the season does re-commence we want to be sure were are in the best possible position to give it our best shot.”
