Featherstone have signed centre Jake Spedding from Barrow on a deal until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has made 20 appearances for the Raiders in the Championship this season, scoring five tries.

A St Helens academy product, Spedding made his Super League debut for the club in 2016 and he will strength Featherstone’s backline for the rest of 2019.

Spedding said: “When the opportunity came up to sign for Featherstone it was too good an opportunity to turn down.

“They are a huge club with big ambitions and I’m excited to be part of the team for the rest of the season and hopefully we will be successful through the play-off’s and take Featherstone to Super League.”
