France international prop Gadwin Springer has signed a new one-year deal with Championship promotion chasers Featherstone.

Featherstone chief executive Martin Vickers commented: “We’re pleased to have secured Gadwin’s services for another year.
“Gadwin has made a significant impact for the club since joining midway through the season. He has become a real favourite with our fans.
“He seems to getting stronger and stronger with each game. We are really excited about the impact he can make for the club in 2023.”
Springer: “I’m really pleased to be staying at Fev for another year. It’s my second stint at the club and I’m really happy here.
“I’m looking forward to putting in the hard work at the end of this season to help us reach our Super League ambition for 2023.”
Gadwin Springer latest player to commit to Featherstone
Samoa powerhouse centre Joey Leilua, France international full-back Mark Kheirallah and Cook Islands half-back Johnathon Ford have all put pen to paper on new deals with Featherstone for 2023, regardless of what league they are in.
The trio, who have been regulars for Brian McDermott’s side this season, have signed one-year deals with the club for 2023, whether that be in Super League or in the Championship.
Rovers chairman Mark Campbell said: “Attracting players of this calibre is one thing, but being able to retain them shows the environment we’ve built and how we’ve helped these players settle into life at Featherstone.”
Featherstone and league leaders Leigh are already in the semi-finals of the Championship play-offs having secured a top-two finish. The semi-finals will be played on Sunday, September 25.
