Harper signs for Sheffield

Sheffield Eagles have confirmed the signing of Eze Harper on a one-year deal.

Harper, 22, was released from Leigh Centurions following their promotion to Super League for the 2017 season.

He was due to join League One side Keighley Cougars before the Eagles secured his signature.

Harper can play centre or wing and played three times for the Centurions in 2016, scoring one try.

He was loaned out to League One side Barrow Raiders for a large proportion of last year, making a great impact for the Cumbrian side scoring 11 tries in 12 appearances.

Eagles Head Coach Mark Aston said: “I’m thrilled we managed to bring Eze (Harper) into the squad.

“He is a tall, strong, solid player and is good with the ball in hand. He will add competition for places which is vital.

“The squad is still relatively small so it’s great we’ve brought Eze in and we’ll likely throw him straight into the squad for this Sunday’s preseason match against Wakefield.

“We are still in the market for more players and if the right player comes along, we’ll take a look at them.”
