One of Featherstone’s off-season recruits from Down Under, Jy Hitchcox, could be somewhat of an unknown quantity in the Championship this season.
The question remains as to where the versatile former Australian schoolboy international will play.
He told the club’s official website: “To be honest I don’t have a favourite position, I like the challenge centre brings in the line with defensive reads and hole running.
“I also love fullback with so much broken space and free running along with playing a secondary pivotal role in the back-line. Last year I played both sides of centre, both wings, fullback, hooker and a game at lock.
“I’m not too bothered where I play as long as I’m contributing to the team.”
He added: “I’m very excited about the new opportunity and I am looking forward to meeting my new team mates and coaching staff.
“I thrive on new experiences and challenges and took this one no different from my last. As far as knowledge of the clubs history I don’t know much but from the little I’ve gathered Ii know they are a very passionate and proud club with a will to succeed.”
