Leigh Centurions have completed their second the signing from Castleford Tigers in a matter of days after announcing the arrival of French international forward Kevin Larroyer on a two-year contract until the end of November 2019.
The 28-year-old, who has earned 14 caps for his country, was a member of Castleford Tigers’ Betfred Super League Leaders Shield winning squad in 2017.
Leigh Centurions head coach Neil Jukes said: “Kevin has age on his side and a toughness in how he plays the game. He is at an important stage in his career where he needs to be playing first grade regularly.
“He has size with a good skill-set and the durability to play a number of positions really well. I know first-hand how keen he is to come to Leigh Centurions and apply these trades to assist us in achieving our goals.
“Kevin has done a lot in his career and has enjoyed some outstanding moments. He has also played a big part in supporting the Castleford team of 2017.
“It was tough for him to break into that side consistently given the current roster they have but he did achieve it on a number of occasions and the desire and work ethic he displayed are qualities that we admired.”
