Featherstone have re-signed Gareth Gale on a two-year deal.
The 26-year-old has impressed for the Rovers on trial during pre-season, scoring four tries in their recent win over Valencia Huracanes.
Gale initially joined Featherstone ahead of last season but had to leave the club due to other commitments.
Gale said: “I’m really happy to have signed for Featherstone Rovers.
“It’s such a good feeling signing for your hometown club and particularly the club you grew up supporting.
“I feel like the trial period I have had has gone really well, it’s given me the opportunity to showcase my skills and show what I’m really capable of.
“It’s been a real learning experience working with the coaches here and being around experienced and talented players. They’ve all helped me improve my game and I can’t wait to get started this season.”
Rovers football manager, Steve Gill, added: “I’m really pleased Gaz has decided to put pen to paper here, before his trial we all believed he had the credentials to be a top quality Championship player here at Featherstone Rovers.
“He is a fantastic young man, who has served the community game really well at Featherstone Lions and I am sure they will all wish him well as he turns semi-professional.”
